Work experienceEMLab hosts two work experience students from local schools

[17th July 2017]

 Every year the EMLab welcomes work experience students from local schools. The students spend a week with us learning about our work, helping with activities such as specimen preparation and carrying out a small project of their own. This year we hosted Mariam Uwais from Kendrick School, Reading, and Sam Anderson from Forest School, Wokingham, who are pictured above. One of Sam's micrographs, of a stinging hair on a nettle leaf is [July 's image of the month]. We enjoyed having Mariam and Sam with us, and wish them well in their future careers.

Celebration

New TEM party

[5th April 2017]

Guests from inside and outside the University, including our former colleagues Chris Stain and Matthew Spink, joined EMLab staff today to celebrate the opening of the new JEOL 2100Plus TEM facility. A light lunch, with excellent cakes prepared by Sherrie and Elaine, was enjoyed, followed by demonstrations of the new microscope and of the two SEMs. The new instrument is now fully operational, and beginning to produce exciting results for users across the campus.

[20th February 2017]

Our new transmission electron microscope was delivered today. The delivery went smoothly, despite some difficulties created by the major building works going on in and around the JJT building.

Mr Morimoto of JEOL is now carrying out the installation, which is expected to take 2 - 3 weeks. Training on the new instrument will then be available.

 

 

Going, going, gone

[13th January 2017]CM20

As 2016 drew to a close we said farewell to the CM20 transmission electron microscope. The picture shows the microscope being dismantled. The CM20 was installed in 1992, initially as a joint facility for the Departments of Physics and Chemistry. In 2003 it became part of the Centre for Advanced Microscopy (CfAM), and subsequently EMLab. It has been heavily used over the years on a very wide range of projects, from virology to polymer science. The room is now being prepared for the new JEOL 2100Plus TEM, which we expect to be delivered in early February.
