Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)
The JEOL 6060 scanning electron microscope is used for investigations of bulk specimens. Contact Nicole Bouffard for information about use.
Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)
The JEOL 1400 Transmission Electron Microscope is a high-contrast, high-resolution instrument utilizing a LaB6 filament, and capable of operating at accelerating voltages up to 120 kV. Contact Nicole DeLance or Tim Connolly for information about use.
Confocal Laser Microscopy
The Nikon A1R-ER is a point-scanning confocal that contains a dual scanning system built into the scan head. It has both a high resolution galvanometer scanner and a high speed resonance scanner. The galvanometer scanner can be used to acquire high spatial resolution images and the resonance scanner can be used to acquire highly temporarily resolved images. Contact Nicole DeLance, Nicole Bouffard, or Kyra Lee for information about use.
Asylum Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)
The Asylum Research MFP-3D BIO AFM allows investigation of biological/materials surfaces at high resolution. Contact Nicole Bouffard for information about use.
Cypher Atomic Force Microscope (AFM)
The Asylum Research Cypher ES
boasts exceptional performance and full environmental control features.
It masters high resolution imaging with speed and stability while
containing an easily operatable environmental chamber to control gas or
liquid environments, at temperatures from 0-250°C, and in some of the
harshest chemical environments. The Cypher ES is the ultimate AFM for
the most demanding experimental requirements.Contact Nicole Bouffard for information about use.
