Acquisition of a versatile scanning electron microscope for multi-user research and teaching in the Electron Microscopy Center at North Dakota State University

Through NSF support, North Dakota State University acquired a low-vacuum scanning electron microscope (JEOL JSM-6490LV) equipped with energy dispersive spectrometer, tensile stage, and remote imaging and control.

Intellectual Merit

Housed in NDSU’s Microscopy Center, a service facility for the campus and beyond, this instru-mentation supports secondary and backscatter imaging and micro-analysis for research, research training, classroom education, and outreach programs, strengthening ongoing research projects and stimulating new endeavors in nano-technology, biomaterials, and poly-meric materials/coatings, as well as biological fields. This microscope permits investigation of a wide range of samples that could not be studied easily with previous instruments. 

This versatile microscope will in-crease the number of students and researchers using our facility, pro-viding new and exciting research and educational opportunities in existing courses and stimulating curriculum expansion in nano-science, engineering, and other disciplines.

Acquisition of a versatile scanning electron microscope for multi-user research and teaching in the Electron Microscopy Center at North Dakota State University

Through NSF support, North Dakota State University acquired a low-vacuum scanning electron microscope (JEOL JSM-6490LV) equipped with energy dispersive spectrometer, tensile stage, and remote imaging and control.

Broader Impacts

The new JEOL JSM-6490LV system supports existing collaborative research and stimulates new cooperative pro-grams. It strengthens our collaboration with a consortium of regional colleges initiating a nanotechnology technician training program.

The capability for remote operation, via WebSEM, from on- or off-campus class-rooms or offices (essentially anyplace with Internet availability) provides a unique opportunity for easy access to a state-of-the-art microscope.

This instrumentation facilitates remote microscopy access to North Dakota tribal colleges and high schools through the NATURE program (Nurturing American Tribal Undergraduate Research and Education), as well as other regional colleges and universities, and sustains and extends our outreach to K-12 students and teachers across the region.
