University Liège

University Liège becomes labs@location Partner for ZEISS

Providing in depth knowledge and dedicated services

Customer Story

GeMMe of University Liège, Belgium is now a labs@location partner of ZEISS. Focusing on the circular economy, construction materials, process mineralogy, geometallurgy as well as extractive metallurgy & recycling. Professor Pirard and his team use a correlative setup from ZEISS incorporating a ZEISS Sigma 300 FE-SEM with Mineralogic Mining software, SEM mounted µXRF system and ZEISS Axio Imager research grade polarization light microscope to understand important topics in the mining value chain. This analytical powerhouse is the only such setup in Europe to date.

TEM lamellae

A new way of FIB-processing

Creating TEM lamellae with the new Ion-sculptor FIB column of ZEISS Crossbeam

Knowledge

News

The Ion-sculptor FIB column of the ZEISS Crossbeam FIB-SEM introduces a new way of FIB-processing. By minimizing sample damage you’ll maximize sample quality and perform experiments faster at the same time. When preparing TEM lamellae use the low voltage capabilities of the Ion-sculptor FIB: get ultra-thin samples while keeping amorphization damage at a minimum.

Microplastics in the marine environment

ZEISS helps to highlight an invisible problem of global scale

Customer Story

Plastic litter in the oceans is a global problem. Microplastics, largely invisible to the naked eye, are the most common type of plastic in the ocean and thus also on beaches. The small size of microplastics, however, means this plastic can affect the very base of the marine food chain in a similar fashion when planktonic organisms become entangled or eat the plastic with devastating consequences. Once microplastics have entered the base of the food chain, they can then be passed upwards and toxins are spread throughout the chain.
