The Laboratory of the Italian Institute of Welding Group through various optical and metallographic microscopes and one  Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is able to perform investigations in the field of microscopy to support the various activities within the Lab itself.

Thanks to the SEM an high depth of field together the back scattered detector mode observations can be adopted; these features allow to use this powerful instrument both for micro-fractography and high-magnification analysis of metallographic polished samples.

The microprobe EDS of which the SEM is equipped is an important practical tool to carry out  semi-quantitative chemical analysis of surfaces, excellent support for complex metallographic examinations for and failure analisys activities in the context for metallic materials and electronic components.
