Laboratory for Analytical Electron Microscopy

In the laboratory for analytical electron microscopy, microstructural investigations of metallic and ceramic materials are carried out.

The sphere of responsibility includes specimen preparation by conventional techniques and by focused ion beam (FIB) cutting; imaging of the microstructure by transmission electron microscopy (TEM); high resolution imaging of crystal structure and crystal defects, phase and structure analysis by electron diffraction and evaluation of crystallographic properties, chemical microanalysis by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) and by electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) combined with energy spectroscopic imaging (ESI, EFTEM).
