|1930 - meetup|
Goal of this project is to assess whether is possible to build a scanning electron microscope in DIY conditions. There are various sensors that can be used together with SEM - the easiest one to get running is probably the secondary emission detector. However it would be great if we would be able to use backscatter detectors or even X-ray detector for EDX spectroscopy one day!
It will also be necessary to get some kind of metal sputtering working to be able to view non-metallic samples.
(We'll begin with coarse building blocks and discuss details later)
