The CDTN Electron Microscopy Laboratory consists of a scanning electronic microscope with field effect emission (FEG-MEV) model SIGMA VP, manufactured by Carl Zeiss Microscopy company. The equipment operates at high vacuum and variable pressure (VP) modes. In the VP mode, it is possible to obtain images from electricity non-conducting material without the need to apply conductive coatings. A microscope differential is the GEMINI® column, whose design allows obtaining excellent quality images even when operating at low voltages.
