Laser ablation ICP-MS allows for spatial elemental mapping and quantification down to 1 micron resolution in both biological and inorganic solid samples.  The Excite delivers finely controlled, “homogenizer-flat” ablations with high sensitivity and split second response.

For bulk quantification of most elemets with sensitivities ranging from ppm down to ppt. The NexION 350D includes a dual-channel Universal Cell and the ability to use Dynamic Reaction Cell™ (DRC™) technology.

High sensitivity ellipsometer operating from UV to IR.

The Cleanroom at LCN on the Bloomsbury site has 255 square metres of ISO 14644-1 Class 6 (Class 1000) cleanroom housing most of our equipment for Plasma etch, Photolithography, Wet Chemical, Metallisation, Furnace, Characterisation and Electron Beam Lithography processes.

Electron microscope: TEM, STEM, EDXS, EELS, nano-diffraction

The LCN currently has two Bruker CellHesion 200 AFM systems primarily for measuring cell to cell or cell to substrate interactions. It can also quantify cell elasticity and response to mechanical stress.

The Bruker Nanowizard 4 combines fast scanning with high resolution at scan sizes up to 100um and is designed to provide mechanical and thermal stability on inverted optical microscopes for long term imaging.

An Everbeing EB-6 high precision probe station is available for DC wafer probing. Four low noise, high precision probes are available along with a microscope and digital camera. The EB-6 was donated to the LCN by Everbeing in January 2017.

The Bruker Dimension FastScan AFM allows imaging rates up to frames/second without sacrificing resolution from subnanometer to 100's of nanometers in height.

The LCN is equipped with two Bruker Nanowizard ULTRA Speed AFMs for fast scanning at up to 300Hz line rate in air and liquid at high resolution.
