About the Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis


CEMAS: the materials characterization hub for business and academia.

The Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis (CEMAS) is a centralized, coordinated imaging facility where traditional boundaries between disciplines are eliminated.

With one of the largest concentrations of electron and ion beam analytical microscopy instruments in any North American institution, CEMAS brings together multidisciplinary expertise to drive synergy, amplify characterization capabilities, and challenge what is possible in analytical electron microscopy.

Our world-class multidisciplinary approach enables academic and business partners to "see more" than ever before. 

We are challenging the current characterization limitations in medicine, environmental science, energy materials and beyond.

Our full-service facility - from extensive sample preparation laboratories to image-processing tools and support - allows researchers to carry out their entire microscopy and analysis program at CEMAS. Located in a custom designed facility on The Ohio State University's West Campus, every instrument in the facility meets or exceeds manufacturer performance specifications. 

"...There's no better place on planet Earth to do microscopy than right here at CEMAS" - Don Kania, Former CEO of FEI Company
