Laboratories - Electron Microscopy Laboratory


In the EM Lab different materials can be observed by scanning and transmission electron microscopies. Structural and morphological characterization is performed by HREM-High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy, cryo-microscopy, SEAD-Selected Area Electron Diffraction, PED-Precession Electron Microscopy, Electron Tomography, STEM-Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy, SEM-Scanning Electron Microscopy, X-Ray Diffraction. At present it is the only laboratory in South Italy equipped with cryo-TEM and PED.

Head of laboratory is Prof. Daniela Erminia Manno.

The instruments available in the lab for research and training are:

Scanning electron microscope with EDAX system

Electron microscope equipped with SEM-STEM-PED units

Transmission Electron Microscope with Cryo-TEM unit and Scanning Electron Microscope with STM-AFM probes

X-ray Diffraction system
