A New National Electron Microprobe Facility - UOM Contributions (Non-Lead ARC Lief)

Grant number: LE150100050 | Funding period: 2015 - 2016



Precise chemical microanalysis underpins research on Earth materials. The Electron Microprobe (EMP) is the main instrument to achieve this. It performs rapid quantitative analysis and element mapping on solid materials at micron resolution. This facility will support an impressive variety of research including experimental, igneous and metamorphic petrology and geochronology. It will foster increased collaboration between partner organisations including universities and major geoscience institutes.
