Electron Microscopy/EDS Laboratory
The SEM/EDS Laboratory is a shared campus facility used primarily by the departments of Biology, Geology, and Chemistry.
During fall 2012 the lab acquired a new FE-SEM/EDS system funded in large part by a Sherman-Fairchild Foundation grant to Bates College. The college has purchased a JEOL JSM-7100 FLV variable vacuum field emission SEM and a Thermo/Noran System 7 EDS system. We look forward to training our students on these up-to-date technologies and welcome the expanded opportunities for innovative teaching and research that the new instruments will bring!
