UME CAT - Centro de Apoyo Tecnológico

Universidad Rey Juan Carlos

Technological Support Center of University Rey Juan Carlos (TSC-URJC or CAT-URJC) offers scientific services for researchers from universities, researching centers and companies.

Technical Capabilities

Electron Microscopy Laboratory has numerous and varied technologies related to scanning electron and transmission electron microscopy (ESEM, TEM, FEG-SEM) and the sample preparation for the observation (crio-ultramicrotomy, sputtering, e-beam evaporation, ion milling, critical point dryer, optical microscopy, electrolytic preparations), advanced software tools for digital image processing and analyzing (SPIP), and tools for study of polycrystalline structure and orientation (EBSD). This has a large experience on the characterization of any type of materials (metal, ceramic, polymer, composites, biomaterials, nanomaterials, etc) for very different applications (energy, health, structural, transport, etc).
