Electron Microprobe Laboratory
The electron microprobe laboratory is located in room B10 of the Earth Sciences Building. It is equipped with two state-of-the-art Electron Probe Microanalyzers (EPMA), the CAMECA SX100 and the JEOL 8900. Each instrument features five wavelength dispersive spectrometers, and an energy dispersive spectrometer The EPMA’s primary function is to provide major- and minor-element analyses of solid samples at the 1-5 micron scale. The instrument can also be used as an imaging tool, providing elemental X-ray maps, secondary and backscatter electron images and cathodoluminescence images.
