An NSF Major Research Instrumentation grant to Gerbi, Johnson, Grew, Koons, Belknap, Kreutz, Lux, and Yates allowed for the purchase of the equipment in the new laboratory, established in Spring 2009. The lab consists of the following major equipment:

Image Description: The SEM lab work area. For class presentations, a ceiling-mounted projector can display any of the three monitors on the far wall.

Image Description: Calcium map generated with the EDS detector of an area of a granulite facies rock.
