DFG Major Research Instrumentation: Scanning Electron Microscope

Project: DFG ProjectsDFG Major Research Instrumentation

Project Details


The university's scientific users require modern transmission and scanning electron microscopy for use in both high and low vacuum, and it also enables work under water vapour saturation. In many projects, sensitive samples are to be imaged that preclude the use of critical point drying and sputtering. This makes it necessary to purchase a device that offers what is known as "environmental scanning electron microscopy". The structural and technical requirements for the installation are in place, and the Institute of Anatomy provides expert support.
