JEOL JXA-8230 Electron Microprobe

This new instrument is used for micron-scale, quantitative chemical analysis of solid materials, for compositional imaging, and full-color cathodoluminenscence (CL) studies

X-ray diffractometer

Our “workhorse” powder X-ray diffractometer is used for routine identification of powdered samples of minerals

Scanning electron microscope

This SEM is useful for routine electron imaging of solid materials and for cathodoluminescence studies of minerals such as zircons
