The Electron Microscopy and Microanalysis Unit (EMMU) is a University wide initiative that brings together leading expertise and facilities for electron microscopy and microanalysis.
Our principal aim is to enable new research, teaching and innovation activities in advanced materials characterization through collaboration and sharing of expertise. EMMU is hosted and managed by the School of the Environment, Geography and Geosciences (SEGG), Burnaby Building.
Key instrumentation available in our laboratories includes:
- Multiple scanning electron microscopes (SEM) with a wide-range of detection systems, transmission electron microscope (TEM), laser ablation inductively-coupled-plasma mass-spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) and wide range of optical microscopes and supporting equipment. The laboratories also host X-ray fluorescence and X-ray diffraction equipment.
