Scanning Electron Microscope and Atomic Force Microscope

Dr Jason Gascooke and Chris Gibson (Senior Research Fellow) from the School of Chemical and Physical Sciences showed the physics students both the scanning electron and atomic force microscopes today.

Students were shown in how both microscopes work and what each is used for, and they saw images of carbon nanotubes and very very small hairs on the leg and body of an insect.  They also learned how the x-ray signature from the SEM can be used to find the elemental composition of a sample.
