Aberdeen Centre for Electron Microscopy, Analysis and Characterisation

Aberdeen Centre for Electron Microscopy, Analysis and Characterisation (ACEMAC)

ACEMAC runs a GeminiSEM 300 high resolution Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope. SE, BSE and cathodoluminescence detectors can be operated in both high vacuum and variable pressure modes, enabling imaging of sample types from steel to rocks to biological cells (down to 0.8 nm). EDS, crystal structures and orientation/strain analysis (EBSD) are also performed. Explore some of the systems and resources they offer users below, and be sure to check out their website for full details and the most up-to-date information.
