Core Summary

The Robert B. Mitchell Electron Microbeam Analysis Lab (EMAL) provides instrumentation for researchers from a variety of disciplines for the chemical and structural characterization of solid materials. The lab houses a variety of electron microbeam and X-ray analysis instruments for materials characterization, focused mainly on imaging, quantitative and qualitative compositional analysis, and micro- and nano-structural analysis. EMAL facilities are used by researchers in a broad range of disciplines, including geology, chemistry, physics, biology, materials science, archaeology, engineering, medicine, archaeology, and even art.
