Imaging Lab performs structural and morphological characterization along with quantitative and qualitative analysis of samples to understand their morphology, properties and chemical composition nature. The imaging lab currently consists of Scanning Electron Microscope with EDAX, Infrared Spectrometer, Uv-Visible spectrometer and Inverted Microscope.
The instruments that currently constitute the Imaging lab are as follows:
Scanning Electron Microscope and EDAX
FEI Quanta 200 environmental scanning electron microscope (ESEM) with EDAX EDS system. Our SEM produces enlarged images of a variety of specimens, achieving magnifications of over 100000x
Infrared (IR) Spectrometer
Infrared spectrophotometers record the relative amount of energy as a function of the wavelength/frequency of the infrared radiation when it passes through a sample. This instrument can operate in ratio, single-beam, or interferogram mode. It gives data collection over a total spectral range of 7800 to 370 cm-1
UV/Vis spectrometers are routinely used in analytical chemistry for the quantitative determination of different analytes, such as transition metal ions, highly conjugated organic compounds, and certain biological macromolecules. Measurements are usually carried out in solution.
Oxion Inverso is an inverted microscope and can be used for fluorescence imaging of materials and biological samples.
