The Cavendish Laboratory


The Electron Microscopy Suite has a wide range of electron microscopes, including a high-resolution SEM (FEI FEG XL30), a 200kV TEM (FEI Tecnai 20), a 100 kV STEM (VG HB501 with EELS) and three environmental SEMs (an Electroscan 2020, a field emission FEI XL30 ESEM and a FEI Dualbeam Quanta 3D).

The suite is a user facility for staff and students in Physics and other departments and is also available for consultancy and contract work.

Current research interests include:
Environmental STEM imaging
FIB nano and micro fabrication
Ion and electron beam assisted deposition
Residual stress analysis
Soft material imaging
