The University of Michigan Electron Microbeam Analysis Laboratory (EMAL)




The University of Michigan Electron Microbeam Analysis Laboratory (EMAL) (http://emalwww.engin.umich.edu/) is a university-wide USER facility for the structural and chemical characterization of materials at nanometer length scales. It is a regional user facility and is available to the project on a University User Fee basis. Michigan State University and the University of Michigan share an identical fee schedule for the use of this facility. It contains the following major equipment:


The FEI Nova Nanolab Dualbeam Focussed Ion Beam Workstation with Micromanipulator and scanning electron microscope enables the preparation of ultra-thin (70 nm is the maximum) cross sections of nanomaterials for subsequent high resolution TEM analysis. The instrument specifications include:
