Scanning Electron Microscopy - SEM

Dr Alasdair Charles, CChem, FRMS, FICorr

  • Academic Lead for Electron Microscopy

I have been actively involved in scanning electron microscopy, EDX and a range of analytical services for over 25 years having operated, managed and specified machines for the University. I also use the techniques to support my research interests in archaeo-metallurgy and in studies of environment assisted cracking and corrosion.

My current role is to advise clients on which analytical techniques might be most suitable to use, to resolve special sample preparation issues and to provide comment on how best to interpret data generated from our electron microscope service instruments.
