Chemical and TEM Characterizations for Advanced Materials

The Analytical Research Core for Advanced Materials (ARCAM) gives elemental composition data, and supports TEM analysis of metal and inorganic materials. We also develop analytical procedures in order to obtain reliable analytical data.The ARCAM assays major and trace elements in consigned samples by using the following methods: ICP-AES, ICP-MS, atomic absorption spectrometry, CS/ONH analysis, ion chromatography, and conventional chemical analyses including gravimetric analysis, titrimetric analysis and spectrophotometry. Additionally, we provide TEM analysis services (which enable evaluation of microstructures, crystal structures and chemical compositions in nano-/meso- scale) on structural and functional materials and microdevices.
