Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy

 About MCEM

The Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy (MCEM) is a central Monash University Technology Research Platform. It provides an advanced capability in electron microscopy to enable researchers to solve major scientific challenges and is optimised for non-biological and engineering applications. MCEM conducts innovative research in electron microscopy, and provides advanced instrumentation, expertise and training to researchers from across the university, government and industry sectors. A brochure provides a small snapshot of just some of the resulting research impact. MCEM together with the Monash Ramaciotti Centre for Cryo-Electron Microscopy form the Victorian node of Microscopy Australia.

MCEM has a suite of advanced instruments, including a double-aberration-corrected Titan3 80-300kV fitted with pixelated and CMOS detectors for scanning CBED and 4D-STEM. In 2021, MCEM installed a next generation S/TEM with outstanding spatial and energy resolution, multiple fast detectors and unique electron-optical elements to optimise performance in S/TEM. In addition, MCEM has 1 other FEGTEM, 1 TEM, 3 FEG-SEMs and a FIB/ESEM plus a range of supporting computing, software and specimen preparation equipment.
