The Electron Microscopy Center (EMC), Argonne National Laboratory
The EMC maintains a leading international role in research on in situ
studies of transformations and defect processes, ion beam modification
and irradiation effects, superconductors, ferroelectrics and interfaces.
Its intermediate voltage electron microscope coupled with a Tandem
accelerator represent the only such system in the US. The EMC also has
resident expertise in instrumentation design, microcharacterization
technique development and telepresence collaboration.
National Center for Electron Microscopy (NCEM), Lawrence Berkeley
The NCEM maintains world class capabilities in atomic resolution
electron microscopy. The facility features several unique instruments,
complemented by strong expertise in computer image simulation and
analysis. The center also maintains one-of-a-kind instruments for
imaging of magnetic materials, and develops techniques and
instrumentation for dynamic in-situ experimentation.
Shared Research Equipment User Facility (ShaRE), Oak Ridge National
SHaRE is a leading facility for the microscopy and microanalysis of
materials, with an emphasis on analytical microscopy. ShaRE maintains a
suite of analytical electron microscopes, atom probe field ion
microscopes and mechanical properties microprobes, with particular
application to the development of alloys and structural ceramics, and
the study of interfacial segregation, radiation effects, microtexture
and residual stress. SHaRE provides a unique resource for atom probe
field ion microscopy and for the microcharacterization of radioactive
specimens on a routine basis.
