The ESEM can still be used. However, the backscatter detector needs to be repaired. There is a wire that needs to be resoldered. The repairs should be completed by the end of the week.
Department of Biological Sciences Seminar Series
Dr. Erico Freitas
Materials Science and Engineering
Michigan Technological University
Dr. Freitas manages the FEI 200kV Titan Themis STEM in the Electron Optics Facility of the Applied Chemical and Morphological Analysis Laboratory (ACMAL) at Michigan Tech. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is widely used for morphological studies of biological systems as it offers a much higher spatial resolution (over 200 times) than optical microscopy. During this seminar Dr. Freitas will present the capabilities of the Scanning transmission electron microscope laboratory at MTU and will address the types of ex-situ and in-situ analysis that can be conducted for biological systems using a diversity of approaches available through the ACMAL.
