© IMPMC - Cécile Duflot


The SEM-FIB microscopy facility at IMPMC provides Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Focused Ion Beam (FIB) expertise for all researchers (from academy and industry)needing versatile, high resolution, state-of-the art electron and ion microscopies to characterize their materials at the nanoscale. The SEM-FIB microscopy facility contains a suite of SEM and FIB microscopes well suited for characterizing nanoscale structures and chemical compositions via a range of imaging and analytical methods. There is also a set of specimen preparation facilities including a coating unit and a critical point drier.
