Our mission

Center for electron microscopy and microanalysis (CEMM) is an infrastructure unit of the Jožef Stefan Institute, which combines the analytical equipment in the field of electron microscopy and micro-analysis, which is necessary to carry out research and development work sections of the JSI. Access to CEMM research equipment has also other research institutions and universities. Users of research equipment are CEMM especially those researchers who are interested in the comprehensive structural and chemical characterization of inorganic materials with a number of complementary methods of electron microscopy, and on the micron, nanometer and atomic scale.

Center for electron microscopy and microanalysis (CEMM) provides users with access to equipment for scanning and transmission electron microscopy, as well as in the preparation of samples. Besides maintainance of the equipment, other CEMM activities include, among other, training of new operators, organization of workshops and conferences on the topic of electron microscopy, providing services for industrial partners and implementation of new analytical techniques. CEMM personnel are also responsible for the dissemination of electron microscopy techniques to the general public in the scope of organized visits to the IJS, as well through publications in traditional and digital media.
