With the installation of new state-of-the-art electron microscopes, ASU is solidifying its stature as a worldwide leader in microscopy.
The aberration-corrected electron microscopes will expand the capabilities of ASU’s microscopy experts to aid researchers pursuing advances in science and engineering, provide industry the knowledge to improve its products and educate of the next generations of leaders in microscopy.
The work of the university’s new Southwest Regional Center for Aberration Corrected Electron Microscopy was discussed on KAET-Channel 8’s “Horizon” public affairs program in an interview with Nathan Newman, a materials science and engineering professor in the School for Engineering of Matter, Transportation and Engineering, one of ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
Newman directs the LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid State Science in ASU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The center houses the electron microscope facilities and more than 40 additional state-of-the-art instruments for synthesizing and characterizing materials.
