This is what happens when a Jurassic dinosaur is introduced to twenty-first centure technology.
Our 3D Vis Lab offers surface scanning facilities using laser, structured light and focal variation technologies.
We use specialist techniques to determine the concentrations of elements and chemical species in a wide range of samples.
In confocal microscopy a small, flourescent object is scanned using a laser beam to build up a 3D shape one line at a time.
A non-invasive and non-destructive technique that uses X-rays to create 3D models of the internal and external features of specimens.
Our state-of-the-art microscopy systems allow scientists to see beyond the limits of the naked eye.
Our instruments allow us to conduct qualitative and quantitative elemental analysis of samples.
Repair and modification of specialist electronic equipment
Our staff are specialised in preparing mineralogical samples for microscopy and chemical analysis.
A powerful magnification tool that utilizes focused beams of electrons to obtain information.
A tool for phase identification, quantification and crystal structure analysis.
