Additional recommended knowledge
CfAM offers a full consultancy service for health, food, chemical, electronic, security, polymer and other materials across commerce and manufacturing industries. It provides training courses for microscopists and technicians at other organisations who are responsible for supporting microscopy services. Founded in 2003, it contains transmission electron microscopes, scanning electron microscopes, scanning probe microscopes, and infrared & raman microscopes together with dedicated sample preparation laboratories. Each scanning electron microscopes is equipped for x-ray analysis allowing detailed elemental mapping. For one instrument both energy dispersive and wavelength dispersive instrumentation is available providing a powerful and sensitive microanalysis facility.
