Our CAMECA SX-50 Electron Microprobe is for research and teaching activities in geochemistry, petrology and geochronology.

It serves a broad spectrum of research scientists at Indiana University-Bloomington and neighboring universities. Its capabilities include complete micron-scale quantitative chemical analysis and imaging with back-scattered electrons, secondary electrons and x-rays (elemental mapping).

In addition to the Electron Microprobe, the lab is equipped with supporting sample preparation and photomicrographic equipment. The electron microbeam laboratory is supervised by a full-time research scientist, Chusi Li.
