Grand Opening Slated for Electron Microscopy Facility
Posted on: 09/12/2013
The Ohio State University Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis (CEMAS), will host its ribbon cutting ceremony on September 18. The $15 million center has been developed as a new hub for business and academia for materials characterization and offers Ohio State researchers, other academic institutions, and industry tremendous microscopy capabilities under one roof.
“This truly unique facility exemplifies The Ohio State University’s excellence-to-eminence trajectory,” said College of Engineering Dean David Williams, a TMS member. “CEMAS is one of the largest advanced materials characterization centers in the world, and now companies, researchers, and students from anywhere can connect with Ohio State in ways that will facilitate groundbreaking innovation across disciplines.”
Located on Ohio State’s west campus in Columbus, CEMAS comprises ten FEI electron microscopes, including two aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopes optimized to perform analysis on the atomic scale, three additional transmission electron microscopes (TEMs), two dual-beam focused ion beam (FIB) instruments and three scanning electron microscopes (SEMs). There are also two X-ray diffractometer (XRD) systems, facilities for nanoindentation, and an extensive array of sample preparation facilities.
