A Scanning Electron Microscope is a form of microscopy that uses focused beams of electrons to reveal the surface topography of a specimen. The Hitachi TM1000 is able to process non-conductive samples (they do not have to be sputter-coated), samples can be up to 70mm wide / 50mm high, and are best imaged when dry. The workshop will go over how to prepare samples as well as how to operate the machine. Anyone attending the workshop is encouraged to bring their own samples.

 Registration Info: Workshops cost $50 for non-ARF affiliated researchers. It is free for ARF researchers.
