The highly siderophile, or iron-loving, elements (HSE) include the more familiar precious metals (platinum, palladium, rhodium and gold) as well as exotic varieties (rhenium, osmium, ruthenium and iridium). They are all useful to society, owing to exceptional thermal, surface and electronic...

analytical electron microscope (asem) for research and training in textural and chemical analysis

2010/11 • $143,000 • PI,CO
Detailed chemical and textural analysis of synthetic and natural samples is central to the development of advanced engineered materials as well as to our understanding of the Earth and terrestrial planets. The electron microscope is one of a family of modern instruments used to provide this...
