About

The Advanced Light and Electron Microscopy Facility (@YorkUMicroscopy) operates under the Office of the Director Research and Partnerships, Faculty of Science.

@YorkUMicroscopy features a high-performance field emission microscope with high, low and environmental vacuum modes.The system is equipped with electron and ion sources to accommodate the widest range of the modern industrial and academic research meeting imaging requirements for life sciences, materials sciences and industrial process control. Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy and Electron Backscatter Diffraction complement Materials Characterization and aid Failure Analysis.

@YorkUMicroscopy Laser Scanning and Spinning Disk Confocal microscopes provide flexibility to address all challenges of cell biology.
