 Microscopy Laboratories

 

Patrick Brock

The Hitachi Scanning Electron Microscope routinely gives good images up to 20 or 30K magnification. Certification is needed to operate this equipment. The Princeton Gamma Technologies Energy Dispersive Unit is operational. Coupled with these technologies are sputter coaters (gold and carbon).

The petrography laboratory contains a dozen old but operational Vickers polarizing microscopes, and a few newer Olympus scopes. Diamond saws and grinding laps are available for making thin sections. We have class sets of dissecting microscopes for visually anaylizing bulk samples and fossils. Many of the professors have research grade polarizing microscopes and photomicrograph setups
