Preliminary imaging and mapping of samples may be done in the lab on either the Olympus SZX12 binocular microscope or Olympus BX51 petrographic microscope using the Jenoptik ProgRes Cfcool digital camera. BSE (compositional) and SE (topographic) imaging can be done in the microprobe with magnifications ranging from 40X to 300,000X. Mapping of multiple elements and BSE may be done simultaneously using both WDS and EDS. See Scheduling and Fees for pricing.
In this lab the Denton DV-502A is typically used to coat samples with 200 angstroms of carbon. Use of this instrument will be supervised by the probe manager. See Scheduling and Fees for pricing.
