CFI Award to support EOAS Microbeam Lab

August 20, 2020

EOAS has been awarded $800,000 by CFI to support acquisition of a new field emission electron microprobe under the project High Resolution Automated Mineralogy for Carbon Sequestration by Greg Dipple. Support for the remainder of the $2.0 Mill equipment purchase is sought through the BC KDF and through vendor support. The new instrument will replace an aging tungsten filament electron microprobe and provide unparalleled high-resolution automated chemical characterization of earth materials in support of research across EOAS and beyond.
