NDnano Summer REU Seminar: A Short Introduction to Scanning Electron Microscopy

-

Location: 258 Fitzpatrick Hall

Presented by:
Gary H. Bernstein
Frank M. Freimann Professor of Electrical Engineering
University of Notre Dame

Abstract
Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), is one of the most common and useful analytical techniques for both the hard and soft sciences. It allows objects to be imaged at size scales even smaller than 1 nm in some cases. This talk will show several examples of images taken with SEM and discuss the underlying process that makes it possible.…
