Message from the Center:

The Electronic Microscopy Unit aims to contribute effectively to the research plan in the fields of biological, chemical, physical, geological, medical, engineering and nanoscience, which is carried out by faculty members and their assistants from lecturers, lecturers and undergraduate students, as well as providing services to the surrounding community.

Objectives of the Center:

1- Providing specialized research services in the field of electronic imaging of biological and non-     biological samples using the scanning electron microscope .

2- Supporting researchers from faculty members and graduate students at the university to carry out       research and scientific projects.

3- Holding training courses for faculty members and researchers from inside and outside the university. 4- Providing community services to introduce modern methods of micro-scanning for school students in Taif.

Services provided by the Unit:

1- The Scanning electron microscope (SEM) to study the surfaces of biological and non-biological samples of different materials such as the study of the surfaces of cement, alloys and surfaces of different materials.
2- TRANSMITTING ELECTRON MICROSCOPE (TEM) for the study of fine cell structures, examination and diagnosis of healthy and diseased tissues and tumors, as well as the study of viruses, bacteria and nanoparticles.
3- ENERGY DISPERSIVE ANALYSER of X-RAY (EDAX) for qualitative and quantitative analysis of metallic elements at selective points.

4- Optical microscopes equipped with a camera, for direct sampling and imaging.
