Practical  Courses

The Department of Materials Science & Engineering is opening at the beginning of each semester practical courses for operating the following equipment:

  • EMC – The Electron Microscopy Center
  • X-Ray Diffraction Laboratory
  • The Laboratory for Physical Measurements
  • Student Lab

EMC – The Electron Microscopy Center  – Practical Courses

  • E-SEM Quanta 200 –
    An environmental SEM, enabling characterization of non-conducting materials without a conductive coating, and is equipped with EDS (light element) and WDS
  • Zeiss Ultra-Plus FEG-SEM
    A Schottky field emmission gun high-resolution SEM (FEG-SEM) which includes a heating stage up to 1050C, an EDS detector with an energy resolution of 127eV and a unique combination of detectors. The microscope is also equipped with a pico-indenter for in-situ mechanical testing and a EBSD detector with an option for TKD (Transmission kikuchi diffraction).
  • Dual Beam Plasma FIB
    A dual-beam focused Xe+ ion beam (FIB). This microscope is equipped with a Kleindiek manipulator for sample extraction system for lift-out TEM specimen preparation and a time of flight secondary ion mass spectroscopy (TOF-SIMS) detector for very sensitive surface analysis for different isotopes of thin layers, diffusion profile, interfaces, semiconductors etc.
  • Tecnai G2 T20
    A 200KeV (or 120KeV) TEM with a LaB6 electron source and an FEI Supertwin Objective Lens. This microscope is also equipped with BF and DF STEM detectors, an EDS detector, a plate camera, a 1Kx1K multi-scan CCD, and a TV rate CCD.
  • Titan Themis 60-300 FEG-S/TEM
    A high resolution FEG S/TEM operating at 60, 200 and 300KeV. This microscope is equipped with a monochromator for sub-eV energy resolution and an objective lens aberration corrector system for sub-A spatial resolution. It is also equipped with a high resolution energy filter (for sub-eV EELS and energy filtered TEM), an EDS detector, a high resolution STEM system (including BF, DF and HAADF detectors), a 4Kx4K CCD.

Anyone interested in learning how to operate these microscopes is invited to fill and submit the online registration form (see link below).
