MIM Materials Characterization Facility

MIM's dedicated materials characterization facility includes state-of-the-art electron microscopes, analytical instruments and a dedicated sample preparation laboratory. These resources are supported by dedicated technical personnel with interdisciplinary experience and a track record of partnership-building.

FEI Talos F200X S/TEM

Description: High-end, state of the art transmission electron microscope housing a variety of detectors in STEM mode including High Angle Annular Dark Field (HAADF) detector for Z- contrast images, Bright Field and Dark Field detectors, and Super EDX detector for chemical composition analysis and mapping at the nano scale. Talos holders include:

  • Single tilt holder
  • Double tilt holder for diffraction analysis
  • Tomography holder to construct 3D images or 3D EDS maps

Talos TEM also equipped with a Hysitron PicoIndenter PI95 for in-situ nano mechanical testing inside a transmission electron microscope.

FEI Nova NanoSEM 450

Description: Octane Super EDX detector for chemical composition analysis. It is capable of generating point spectrums, line spectrums, and compositional maps at high resolutions. It is equipped with a Wavelength Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (WDS) detector to obtain elemental information of the sample, especially in light elements. It also has an Electron Backscatter Diffractor (EBSD) for crystallographic information such as phase identification and crystal orientations.

FEI Quanta 650 FEG Environmental SEM

Description: Octane Super EDX detector for chemical composition analysis. It is capable of generating point spectrums, line spectrum and compositional maps. Attachments include:

  • Peltier Cooled Low Temperature Stage for in-situ experiments up to -20C
  • Two high Temperature Stages for high temperature in-situ experiments such as phase transformations up to 1000C and 1300C
  • Hysitron PicoIndenter PI85L for in-situ experiments to test mechanical properties at room temperature
