Overview

The Deakin Electron Microscope Facility services research interests throughout Deakin University and beyond. Facility staff are responsible for:

  • developing, operating, and maintaining instrumentation and capabilities
  • training and/or collaborating with users on specific instruments.

Staff members provide an advanced level of expertise in the particular type of characterisation technique being used.

Details

Benefits
  • Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) for Field Emission Gun (FEG) Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM): 2D fast acquisition (HKL Nordlys F) with integrated Energy Dispersive X-Ray (EDX) for phase ID + 2D high angular resolution (HKL Nordlys S) + 3D automated serial section in Focused Ion Beam (FIB) (TSL Hikari) with integrated EDX for phase ID
  • Automated Crystal Orientation Mapping (ACOM) for FEG Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEM): Precessed or non-precessed acquisition and ID of crystal lattice diffraction patterns to determine submicron crystal orientations
  • High resolution crystal strain mapping (Crosscourt software)
Access

There is currently one casual staff member providing limited technical support (up to 10 hours per week). All other technical support and infrastructure issues are handled by the relevant area managers. Please contact the facility manager to discuss access.

Access by collaboration, Access by fee for service
Access by users external to managing organisation, Access by users internal to managing organisation
