Scanning electron microscopy services are available at the Shared Materials Instrumentation Facility (SMIF), located in the Fitzpatrick Building on Duke University's West Campus. The facility has two SEMs: an environmental SEM (ESEM) and a high resolution field emission SEM. The ESEM can be used to view hydrated or non-conductive samples. Both instruments can be used for conventionally dried material.
For more information on ESEM capabilities, see FAQs.
For information on access, lab policies and current charges, please go to http://smif.lab.duke.edu/. Please note that forms must be submitted and classes taken before you can have access to the equipment there, so allow time for those processes to be completed.
