Welcome

The Electron Microbeam Laboratories (EML) at UW-Madison house analytical instrumentation for investigating the chemistry and structure of solid materials.

The EML includes the Eugene Cameron Electron Microprobe (EPMA) Laboratory and the Mary and Ray Wilcox Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) Laboratory. Our instruments are used for research and collection of microanalytical information pertaining to a wide array of disciplines including geoscience, materials science, chemistry, physics, anthropology, biology, and engineering.

We are located on the third floor of Weeks Hall in the Department of Geoscience (rooms 302, 306, 310, 312). Please stop by for a visit or contact us for additional information.
