UFS acquires microscope for surface studies

The Centre for Confocal and Electron Microscopy at the University of the Free State (UFS) recently acquired a scanning electron microscope to the value of R1,8 million. The microscope is used to do magnifying surface studies of any material and can also analyse the different elements in material with the help of X-rays. Researchers and students at the UFS attended a workshop during which the functions of the microscope were illustrated.  One of the groups who attended the workshop were, from the left: Ms Chantel Swart (M Sc student), Prof Pieter van Wyk (head of the Centre for Confocal and Electron Microscopy), Ms Annegret Lombard (M Sc student and junior lecturer at the Department of Geology), Ms Monique Goldblatt (M Sc student) and Ms Beanélri Janecke (Centre for Confocal and Electron Microscopy).
