The Microscopy Laboratory

The Microscopy Laboratory is available to provide a broad range of measurements and observations of materials.  The availability of light, polarization, fluorescence and laser-scanning confocal microscopy, in combination with sophisticated digital image analysis and morphometric measures, permits detailed observation and quantification of surface properties.  Facilities for confocal RAMAN and electron microscopy are also available and used routinely.

Leica TCS-SP2 Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope

Leica TCS-SP2 Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope Leica TCS-SP2 Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope -  Available for support of researchers in fields of materials and biological sciences. The unit is fully maintained and has an associated analysis computer with complete Leica software analysis suite.
 

3d Profile Scan The Leica TCS-SP2 Laser Scanning Confocal Microscope allows 3-D imaging, submicron resolutions, and imaging and quantification of resin distribution, subsurface damage, failure surface analysis, and roughness of materials. The confocal microscope, by enabling scanning of thin sections of a sample, allows the researcher to build up a very clean three-dimensional image.
