  • Happy Holidays!

    The Titan will be down for replacing all four X-ray detectors, January 15-30th.  So, please get your TEM done before then or you may have to wait a few weeks for the installation to complete.  It will result in much better low element spectral shapes, eg- no more ugly carbon peaks!
  • At this time masks are not required

And as always, we strive to treat all nationalities and ethnic backgrounds with respect and equity.

Capabilities:

In addition to an FEI Titan with ChemiSTEM technology, we have staff that are experts in sample preparation and imaging to help you solve your problem. A walk through of the OSU Electron Microscope Facility is available by clicking on the links above.

The facility is supported from the Office of Vice-President for Research and the facility's client colleges. The facility is located in Suite 145 in Linus Pauling Science Center.
