Measurements Lab

Welcome to the Lowell Makes Measurement Lab!

Here, we work with scanning electron microscopes (SEM). These machines are used for analyzing detailed images of surface structure of any sample used! It can be used to view various surfaces of cells and organisms. The Phenom PURE Scanning electron microscope is easy to use, simpler even than the espresso machine. It is capable of 175,000x magnification with a resolution to 15 nanometers, this tool is ideal for examining small samples like the eyes of a fly, the components of a naked semiconductor or even the crystals that compose human kidney stones (Yes… we did that lol)

All experience levels are welcome!
