Microscopy Laboratory

The Microscopy Laboratory houses equipment for microscopic analysis of materials, composites, and products to provide insight for improved quality, performance, and identification. For proper sample preparation, this laboratory contains a Leica TXP target preparation device and a TIC 3X Ion Beam Mill. These polishing and ion milling devices can transform even the most challenging composite materials into near-perfect surfaces suitable for examination at the smallest scale by this laboratory’s scanning electron microscope. The Microscopy Laboratory also contains a fluorescent microscope and a digital microscope for surface examination.
