Imaging Facility team

We offer expert advice, assistance and training on imaging and analysis for researchers and a consultancy service for external customers.

We are available to share our imaging and analysis expertise and our aim is to support research projects within the University, as well as external projects and collaborations.

Our duties include providing our expertise to support research, managing the high-end analytical equipment at the facility, training postgraduate students and consulting with external clients.

The Imaging Facility has two scanning electron microscopes (SEM) and one transmission electron microscope (TEM). The SEMs produce high resolution images of sample surfaces, whilst the TEM images through the sample.
