Education


students in virtual classroomWorld-class education in the theory of electron microscopy and all aspects of its use and operation is at the heart of our mission. Through the use of our virtual learning digital theater, we provide live access to CEMAS instrumentation in real time within a state-of-the-art classroom environment to meet every microscopy need.

We currently partner with the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at The Ohio State University on the following courses:

Structure and Characterization Lab (MATSCEN 2331)

Experiments on X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, optical microscopy, and stereology with applications. Statistical treatment of data and technical reporting.

Advanced Metals Laboratory (MATSCEN 5431)

Advanced laboratory covering various topics in metallic materials.

Practical Scanning Electron Microscopy (MATSCEN 6193.01)

Designed to introduce students to basic operation techniques of the Scanning Electron Microscopy, students will learn the capabilities on an SEM, the types of samples compatible with SEM analysis, hopw to prepare samples for SEM investigation, how to obtain equality images from various types of specimens, and how to overcome some of the issues encountered while analyzing specimens.

Completion of this course with a passing grade will allow users access to reserve respective CEMAS equipment after demonstrating practical understanding of operation and techniques.

Cost: Training costs are included in tuition and are at no cost to the Advisor/Principal Investigator.
