The Services We Provide
  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) which gives a surface morphological examination of materials at magnifications of 20X to 100,000X with a depth of field five hundred times that of optical microscopy.

  • Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDS) which provides elemental information for all elements with an atomic number greater than Boron (#5). Elements can be detected which have a concentration of 0.2 Weight % or greater.

  • Microhardness Testing which is used to determine hardness , either Diamond Pyramid Hardness (DPH) or Knoop (KHN) indentations.

  • Support services including Optical Microscopy, sample preparation, thin sectioning using Isomet cut-off wheel, hot and cold mounting, electroetching, freeze cleaving and nickel overplating
