STFC’s Innovations Technology Access Centre (I-TAC) has strengthened its imaging capabilities by installing additional Hitachi benchtop SEMs at both its Harwell and Daresbury campuses.

These two instruments represent the 100th and 101st benchtop SEM’s installed by Hitachi in the UK, with over 600 now being used around Europe.

STFC’s I-TAC initiative provides flexible access to lab space and equipment to over 60 companies working in bioscience, energy, space technologies, advanced materials and chemical engineering. This flexible access has enabled companies to achieve over £80 million in investment, to create over 100 jobs and to develop over 40 products. Companies are given flexible access to high-specification equipment alongside the world-class science of STFC. 

The two new Hitachi SEMs provide the ideal platform for the wide range of companies to quickly and easily understand their materials and solve process problems. The SEMs are equipped with spectral-imaging EDX, 3D surface metrology and automated stages so detailed R&D can be undertaken as well as quick problem solving.
