Receiving a new microscope by mail: Christmas come early!

Current lab facilities include an Olympus BX51 polarizing microscope with both transmitted and reflected light capabilities. This is outfitted with an SC30, 3.2 MP CMOS camera and Olympus Stream software, allowing the projection of the microscope view onto a computer monitor, and for the capture of high resolution photomicrographs.

Microscopy Central up and running.

Within the GEOS department we have access to an X-ray Diffractometer, and we are in the process of upgrading the software to improve its functionality. We also have an application in to NSF for acquisition of an ICP-MS – keep your fingers crossed!

In the College of Natural Sciences we have access to a Scanning Electron Microscope with energy-dispersive spectrometry capabilities.
