SEM Training Course

All SEM users are required to be trained by an MCF staff member on the operation of the SEM. For convenience, we are offering a condensed training session this summer. The details are in the attached flyer, but in short, this training covers the physical principles underlying SEM, as well as practical approaches and hands-on operation labs. The training covers various imaging techniques available in SEM and energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS). Upon satisfactory completion of this training, students will gain independent access and permission to operate the entry-level SEM. Students doing research can also then pursue individual training with MCF staff in order to gain access and certification for the other more advanced SEM/FIBs at MCF, depending on their research needs and objectives.
