Equipment

The unique combination of our Virtual Petrograph (ViP), argon (Cryo) Broad Ion Beam (BIB) polishers, state of the art Field Emission Cryo Scanning Electron Microscope (Cryo-SEM), and Liquid Metal Injection (LMI) technology with researchers having over ten years of experience makes our lab one-of-a-kind in Europe. We developed the first and only fully integrated Cryo-BIB-SEM workflow on the market today. Our second generation, state-of-the-art facilities enable standardized sample analysis and HD-image processing.
We are experts in our fields, engaging in cutting-edge research and regularly publishing in top peer-reviewed journals. Our knowledge is ahead of the curve and enables us to focus on only the most promising methods and to invest in the most capable equipment. Equipment which is not available yet off-the-shelf is developed in close cooperation with vendors and the engineering institutes of the RWTH Aachen University. Our network and the customer-oriented approach gives us the ability to deliver custom solutions for special projects within a short time-frame.
