Dept. Geological Sciences Electron Microbeam Laboratory

Research activities in the Electron Microbeam Laboratory have resumed with modification, following the start of Stage 3 on June 1st, 2020.

See guidance from the Office of the Vice President of Research here. The lab reopening is predicated on minimizing occupancy and zero inter-personal contact. EPMA work can only be performed by Dr. Orlandini on behalf of researchers. SEM work must be carried out by Dr. Orlandini or 100% independent, solo operators willing to abide by lab rules.

Please contact Dr. Orlandini to make a reservation or with any questions. We apologize for the inconvenience and ask that you stay safe in these challenging circumstances.

The instruments in the Dept. of Geological Sciences Electron Microbeam facility are capable of imaging samples at high-magnification (50x to >100,000x) and producing non-destructive, micro-scale elemental analyses of any material that is stable under an electron beam. Instruments are optimized to collect data from different types of samples, and each instrument is designed to collect certain signals/information from the sample. Information regarding specific applications of each instrument can be found on this site. The lab fosters an environment in which a broad diversity of research can be conducted. Use the tabs on the right-hand side of this page to learn more about our instruments.

Researchers from outside the Jackson School of Geoscience are welcome (and encouraged!) to use our facility. See the scheduling link and cost structure here.

A complete listing of all publications resulting from work in the DGS Electron Microbeam Laboratory (since 2014; updated November 2018) is posted here.

The Bureau of Economic Geology, located on the J.J. Pickle Research Campus, has electron microbeam equipment as well.
