FIB/TEM Facility (FTF)

The Focused Ion Beam/Transmission Electron Microscopy Facility (FTF) located in B11B and B11C at the Photonics Center is a multi-user facility for materials characterization and high-resolution imaging and analysis of a variety of solid materials (non-biological) on nanoscale. The facility is supplemented by an adjacent materials preparation laboratory located in B10 with equipment for cutting, polishing, dimpling and ion milling for preparation of surfaces and cross-sections from bulk specimens for examination with TEM, FIB-SEM, EBSD, EDS.
