Mirco-Environmental Imaging and Analysis Facility (MEIAF)

This state-of-the-art imaging facility for both academic and non-academic research features an environmental scanning electron microscope (ESEM) with X-ray microanalysis and a new cold stage that together enable high-resolution imaging of hydrated specimens, observation of dynamic experiments such as crystal formation and dehydration, freeze-fracturing, and ultra-low temperature imaging.  Applications range from microelectronics to forensic science.  Please see the rest of this website for image examples and equipment and lab details.
