Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) - (Group A) [S-14-51]
|Location:||SLU: Johnson 135|
|Classes:||1 Session 2.0 hours|
|Dates:||Mon 10:00 AM 05/05|
Scanning electron microscopy is a great technology for obtaining very high resolution images, as well as determining the elemental composition of some samples. In this course, we will learn how the SEM functions, do a quick sample prep together, and use that sample to obtain a high resolution image and perform X-ray dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) to do elemental analysis.
Formerly a senior research associate at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Jill Pflugheber worked 17 years in biomedical research before moving here to take a position with SLU as the microscopy technician and ultimately as the microscopy instructor. She enjoys teaching students both SEM and confocal laser scanning microscopy. Jill also functions as the university’s radiation safety and laser safety officer.
