About us

・About NMA laboratory

The Laboratory of Nano-Micro Materials Analysis (NMA) is an open facility, including advanced tools for quick and precise analysis of the composition and microstructure in nanometer - micrometer scale to materials related to green technology and life innovation. In NMA laboratory, we can use advanced facilities; Electron Probe Micro-analyzer (EPMA), Dual beam Focused Ion Beam fabricator (FIB), Field Emission Scanning Microscope (FE-SEM), Conventional Transmission Microscope (CTEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscope (EDS), Electron Back Scatter Diffraction (EBSD), Florescence X-ray Spectroscope (FXS) and other specimen preparation tools. Especially three dimensional analyses, its visualization system and specimen handling system under inert gas environment are very unique points. NMA laboratory provides advanced analysis methods for materials research for new energy, environment, nanotechnology and life sciences, and also it aims to build a practiced support system for both research and equipment maintenance. We welcome for users from both in and outside the university.
