Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS)

Zachary Michels

I am a research scientist in the Geoscience department and the SEM Lab Manager at the Arizona LaserChron Center.

My PhD research and continued research and teaching focuses on microtectonics and the coevolution of rock microstructure and lithospheric rheology.

Zoe Zeszut

Zoe Zeszut has an MS in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Case Western Reserve University, with research focusing on mineralogy and physical properties of carbonaceous meteorites through use of Auger Electron Spectroscopy and Focused Ion Beam sputtering. Zoe previously worked with the OSIRIS-REx asteroid sample return mission as an operations engineer and will continue to support the mission for sample analysis at KMICF. 

Lehigh University Microscopy School 2019

Now accepting registrations for the 49th annual Lehigh Microscopy School which will be held on the campus of Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, June 2-7, 2019. All courses, lecturers and instrumentation will be together for what promises to be a phenomenal week!

Course offerings include:

High Resolution Elemental Analysis from 2kV to 200kV Workshop

This workshop will discuss, through seminars and practical sessions, the technological advances that make nanometer and sub-nanometer elemental characterization possible at wide range of energies in the TEM and SEM.

Afternoon practical sessions featuring hands on demonstrations will use the Imaging Cores - Kuiper (Materials Imaging and Characterization Facility):

“Lab in the gap” - the UA’s new Electron Microscope is ready for solving big scientific problems

An electron microscope uses electrons to probe an object, measuring the physical, chemical and microstructural information down to atomic-level resolution. Recently, there are transformative advancements in electron microscopy: 1) stable, easy-to-use automated aberration correction enables 80pm-resolution instrument for solving real-world problems; and 2) a surge of new development of in situ and environmental techniques.

Jerry Chang

Yao-Jen Chang has a MS degree from Murray State University and PhD degree from University of Kentucky. He is specialized in exploring the structure-property relationships for nanomaterials using electron microscopy techniques, including energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS), selected area electron diffraction (SAED), in situ liquid cell/heating experiments, and Focused Ion Beam Sample Preparation.

Welcome Geosciences!

The Microscopy Alliance is please to welcome two core facilities from the School of Geosciences. The Arizona LaserChron SEM Facility and the SEM Facility are both located in the Gould-Simpson building.
