The Electron Microprobe is used for precise chemical analysis of very small samples (or small portions of samples) down to approximately 1 micron (0.001mm) in size. Our instrument is a CAMECA SX50 housed in Room 236 of the Science and Research Building I.
We are now operational for WDS analyses.
In addition to Geosciences faculty and students, we plan to serve other individuals and groups in the University of Houston and the community.
