Electron Microscopy and Microanalysis Unit

Project: Other


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 SEGG, Burnaby Building. Key instrumentation includes:

Multiple scanning electron microscopes with secondary electron (SE), backscattered electron (BSE), cathodoluminescence (CL), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) detector systems.
