The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) Laboratory is used to study and analyze the physical properties of materials. Common specimens that are analyzed in the laboratory are materials with a metal coating. This microscope aids in the testing of these materials by determining if the specimen contains any fractions or fissures. The SEM allows for a clearer magnification and can provide sharper images of the specimen. These images can be captured in electronic files and stored for future reference.
Courses supported by the facility:
This laboratory is utilized by various classes that analyze physical properties of materials.
