Scanning Electron Microscope Laboratory

Our Evex MiniSEM 3000 was purchased with generous support from the Sherman Fairchild Foundation in 2012. Students and faculty image a diverse variety of materials ranging from ultra thin metal films to holocene diatoms, tertiary fossil leaves to miocene sponge spicules.

 Examples of student research projects that used the SEM include:


SUNDERLIN, KIMBERLY Diagenetic Alterations in Carbonate Glacial Lake Sediments; Hardin, County Ohio
ROWNAD, MARK Reactive Gas Mixtures in Glow Discharge Spectroscopies
Dietrich, Jeffery Glow Discharge: The Effects of Solution-Deposited Anions on a Silver Cathode Glow Discharge: The Effects of Solution-Deposited Anions on a Silver Cathode
SEEDS, KATHERINE Study of an unusually sulphide-poor Copper porphyry deposit in northern California
FREY, HOLLI M. (Honors) The Origin of Meter-Scale Submarine Cavities and Herringbone Calcite Cement in the Ledger Formation, York, Pennsylvania
