Posted: Mar 13, 2012 | 28 min 29 sec

On Feb. 29, 2012, President Michael M. Crow and Senior Vice President for Knowledge Enterprise Development Sethuraman “Panch” Panchanathan hosted a ceremony dedicating the Southwestern Center for Aberration Corrected Electron Microscopy at Arizona State University. This state-of-the-art facility, part of the LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid State Science in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, is designed to enable atomic-scale analysis of materials and will accommodate the needs of researchers across ASU and industrial users across the country.
 
The new microscopy building took 3 months to design and 6 months to build. The facility is extraordinarily stable and quiet, such that the microscopes inside are subject to no noise, no vibration and no electrical interference. This provides the special environment necessary to conduct high-speed chemical mapping, together with related atomic-scale analyses.
