FE-SEM Laboratory

The FE-SEM laboratory in the Department of Geology and Geological Engineering serves students and faculty within the department as well as the broader research community at CSM and the Front Range region. The laboratory provides imaging and analytical services.

Users at all levels of experience are welcome. The FE-SEM forms an integral part of our undergraduate education in petrology and mineralogy and can be accessed by undergraduate students during scheduled class and laboratory activities or as part of their supervised research. The instrument is widely used by graduate students in economic geology, petroleum geology, geological engineering, and hydrogeology. Diverse research is conducted by CSM faculty members. The FE-SEM laboratory also serves the research needs of external users, including government agencies, museums, and private businesses. 

The laboratory was established in September 2015 as a result of a partnership agreement between TESCAN and the Colorado School of Mines. Major donors who contributed to the establishment of the laboratory included Apache Corporation, Tim Bartshe, Marshall and Jane Crouch, Hugh and Michelle Harvey, John and Erica Lockridge, and Jim Weber.
