Thermo Prisma Environmental-SEM

Thermo Prisma Environmental-SEM

Location

B04a McCourtney

Capabilities

  • Control temperature, gas composition, and pressure (up to 4000pa) while observing the sample using EDS and electron imaging
  • Image samples that are traditionally difficult or impossible for SEM, such as hot, dirty, outgassing, wet or otherwise non-conductive samples

Typical Use

  • Materials characterization using electron and X-ray techniques on unknown materials, living cells, dirty/non-conductive/outgassing samples
  • Compositional mapping using ColorSEM to relate texture to composition
  • Observing and recording heating and cooling experiments in the micron to nano scale
  • Observing gas and sample interactions live under the microscope

Internal Hourly Rates

  • Unassisted: $40
