High-Resolution SEM Microanalysis Facility (UNSW)


This is a suite of field-emission scanning-based instruments for high-resolution, chemical and crystallographic analysis including a JEOL 7001F (pictured) with a SDD elemental analyser and EBSD detector and a FEI NanoSEM 230 also with a SDD elemental analyser. The latter instrument operates in low-vacuum mode for the high-resolution analysis of non-conducting specimens. These instruments are ideal for the examination of nano-scale materials and devices.
