Materials Characterization

Within the Materials and Processes Sciences Center at Sandia National Laboratories, an extended group of experts address the many varieties of materials analysis and characterization. Materials characterization specialists regularly and readily team with other Sandia experts to provide cost-effective solutions to materials and processing questions, and to characterize new materials. At their disposal is a large and unique suite of instrumentation and facilities as well as many world-class materials experts upon whom they can call.High-resolution transmission electron micrograph of an SiO2-Si interface.

Recent Accomplishments

Sandia maintains a state-of-the-art capability in electron-optical instrumentation, including:

These capabilities, when used in an integrated way and coupled with the skills of our scientists, provide analysis and characterization of new or existing materials in such areas as microelectronics, micromachines, direct-fabrication techniques, primary-metals production and application, corrosion, ceramics, and polymers. Such an extensive collection of equipment, highly trained operators, and topical experts cannot be found in the private sector nor at any university.
