UOW Electron Microscopy Centre

The UOW Electron Microscopy Centre (EMC), located at the Australian Institute of Innovative Materials, is a centralised, state-of-the-art research facility dedicated to providing quality electron and conventional microscopy based solutions to UOW’s flagship research groups in the Physical and Life Sciences, Engineering and Nanotechnology.

The microscopy suites and well-equipped sample preparation laboratories at the EMC offer a wide range of advanced instrumentation, capabilities and techniques for material characterisation. With an active user base of over 160 users, the EMC is crucial in providing materials expertise through the training, servicing and support of researchers involved in undergraduate, postgraduate, industrial and government research projects.

Based on their unique areas of specialised expertise, the EMC staff undertake research projects in applied microscopy via a combination of individual work, collaboration with industry/organisation partners or through the co-supervision of students.
