Electron Beam Laboratory Suite

The Electron Beam Laboratory suite includes two scanning electron microscopes (SEM), two transmission electron microscopes (TEM), two electron microprobes, one dual-beam focused ion beam (FIB) instrument, one NanoSIMS 50, and a one-of-a-kind laser microprobe. These workhorse instruments are used to characterize all types of materials studied within ARES, and virtually every research group makes frequent use of one or more of these instruments while conducting research in support of the ARES mission.
