Technical and scientific support in the analysis of materials using the equipment available in this facility.
Support during the process of sample preparation before analysis.
Training of graduate students, PhDs, Postdocs and investigators that require an intensive use of the facility for their work.
Support to industrial users during the process of sample preparation, observations and also during the interpretation of the data acquired.
Field Emission Gun Scanning Electron Microscope with Schottky (SE) emission, resolution of 1.2 nm at 15kV, equipped with secondary and backscattered electron detectors. It is also equipped with an Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) light elements detector and a system for the detection and processing of electron backscattered diffraction patterns (EBSD) (Oxford INCA 250).
Transmission Electron Microscope with thermionic emission (LaB6) and 200kV acceleration voltage, resolution of 2.7 Å point to point. It is equipped with an Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) light elements detector (ThermoNoran) and a double-tilt Gatan sample-holder for electron diffraction studies (sample tilts 90º in one direction and 60º on the normal direction). Digital image acquisition with a CCD MegaView II bottom-mounted camera.
Scanning Electron Microscope with thermionic (W) emission and a resolution of 5nm at 25kV. It is equipped with secondary and backscattered electron detectors, and also with a Silicon Drift Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) detector for light elements (Bruker). Image acquisition is digital (Bruker).
