Microbeam instrumentation provides micro-scale imaging and non-destructive elemental analysis to projects ranging across a large segment of the research interests represented in the Jackson School. Electron microbeam instrumentation is available in the Dept. of Geological Sciences and the Bureau of Economic Geology. Outside users are welcome.

Scheduling and Rates
Department of Geology microbeam instrument scheduling is organized by a single session/unit (a daytime unit is from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm; and a nighttime is from 5:00 pm to 8:00 am of next day) in advance. New and experienced users should contact Dr. James Maner (email@example.com) before reserving time on EMPA, SEM, XRD, or ESEM (all in DGS).
Use this site for scheduling instrument time. Rates are available upon request.
Bureau of Economic Geology microbeam instrument scheduling is organized by Dr. Patrick Smith. Please contact him directly with project information.
