Cryo-Focused Ion Beam Facility: From soft to hard materials

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Infrastructure Equipment & Facilities (LIEF)

Abstract


  • The multipurpose Cryo-Focused Ion beam scanning electron microscope (Cryo-FIB) Facility will providerevolutionary insights into beam sensitive materials and biological molecules at high magnification. Thisinstrument will be a unique configuration and the most advanced of its kind in Australia. It will be fitted with agallium ion source, cryo-stage, cryo-lift out and cryo-transfer suite and capable of imaging and compositionalanalysis in two- and three-dimensions and preparing samples for atomic-scale analyses with complementary cryomicroscopies.This equipment will facilitate innovative research in the fields of energy materials, advancedmanufacturing, nanomaterials and in situ cell and structural biology.
