Welcome to the electron microscopy core facility. The core was established in the Agrawal Engineering Research Building (AERB) in 2022 to serve the UH community and external users from the academia and industry.
This core facility is equipped with Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM), a plasma Focus Ion Beam (pFIB), conventional Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and Aberration Corrected TEM (AC-TEM). The resolution of the instruments in this core facility is between 3nm and approximately 100pm. The facility is capable of conducting conventional microscopy, tomography, advanced software image reconstruction, in-situ testing, spectroscopy, among other techniques. Due to the resolution on the instruments, samples can be analyzed to the atomic resolution in both imaging and spectroscopy.
