Microscopy and Microanalysis
Among the facilities at the IIMM are world-leading microscopy, microanalysis and Nanosims facilities for characterisation and control of material microstructures on both molecular and atomic scales. These unrivalled facilities complement the world class expertise found within the Materials Department.
Included within the institute's activities is a pioneering collaborative programme to develop on-line microscopy using SEM technology. In the first instance, this project will provide facilities for schools, but as the programme develops, it will provide opportunities for closer collaboration and provide a contracted service.
