Microscopy & Microanalysis
We're involved in a wide range of scientific research both within the Museum and with outside institutions and other government agencies.
The large depth of field available in the Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) makes it possible to observe three-dimensional objects and specimens using stereoscopy. 3D images allow different morphological features to be correctly interpreted and measured.
Our Microscopy & Microanalysis Unit provides light photomicrographs and Scanning Electron Micrographs to the Australian Museum Research Institute and our public education and exhibition programs, as well as external government agencies, groups and a wide variety of organisations and individuals.
