Electron Microscopy Services – G2MT Labs Houston

Rapid Turnaround on Scanning Electron Microscopy

When it comes to electron microscopy, the most important factors are the electron microscope and the operator; with G2MT Labs you can get the best of both. We provide scanning electron microscopy using a cutting-edge Hitachi electron microscope with EDAX, WDX, and EBSD capabilities (in other words, we have multiple different and powerful ways of analyzing the chemical composition in the microscope). And your operator will be one of two expert metallurgists from the Colorado School of Mines, both of whom are also amateur photographers. They have an eye for image composition and formatting the helps ensure you obtain beautiful, high-quality images that are useful for your needs.

Research and Development

When it comes to research analysis, our SEM services can help you obtain high-quality calibrated image and chemical composition data that you need. We combine that with extensive metallurgical analysis capabilities and experience writing hundred’s of peer-reviewed publications. If extensive SEM analysis is needed, we can help you apply statistical methods to help reduce the total amount of testing time required. We follow ASTM E766 to ensure proper microscope calibration and offer many common ASTM standard practices for the SEM such as ASTM B 748, ASTM E1508, ASTM E1588, and ASTM E2809.

Scanning Electron Microscope Capabilities:

  • Magnifications up to 40,000X
  • Charging Suppression System
  • Low Vacuum and Environmental Modes
  • Semi-quantitative analysis of chemistry by both EDX and WDX
  • EBSD analysis of microstructure, grain composition, and orientation.
  • Fracture surface analysis
  • Fatigue characterization

Scanning Electron Microscopy for Failure Analysis

Electron microscopy often plays a key role in failure analysis investigations as one of the most powerful analytical tools for high-magnification observations and chemical analysis.  We run dozens of failure analyses every month and have experience with sample preparation and analysis to help you find the answers needed. Our extensive experience with coatings, corrosion, fatigue, cracking, welding, and fracture mechanics then helps so that we can find cost-effective mitigation strategies to prevent future failures.
