The Geo Arizona SEM Laboratory consists of a Hitachi 3400N SEM equipped with a Gatan Chroma CL system and an Oxford EDS/EBSD system. We are dedicated to academic research conducted by investigators at the University of Arizona and also welcome collaborations with researchers from universities, laboratories and industry. The instruments were acquired with funds from the US ARRA Program through the NSF EAR Instrumentation and Facilities Program.
