    Project Details

    Description

    It is proposed to purchase a high-resolution Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM) with complementary analytical capabilities to support the diverse materials-science and nanotechnology research activities at the Australian National University. The instrument will support a broad range of fundamental and applied and materials research in fields as diverse as geoscience, biology, chemistry and engineering reflecting the true interdisciplinary nature of nano-scale materials research. The new instrument represents a most powerful platform by combining high-spatial resolution imaging with energy dispersive x-ray analysis (EDAX), electron backscattered diffraction (EBSD) and cathodoluminescence (CL) spectroscopy.
