Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) is Utah’s largest college with the most diverse student body. It serves more than 60,000 students on 10 campuses as well as through online classes. Since SLCC is a community college, it focuses on providing associate degrees that students can transfer to any other four-year university in the state to satisfy their first two years of requirements for a bachelor's degree.
The LVEM5 is a multimodal electro-optical imaging tool designed to be used in the lab or classroom and is ideal for any nano professor. It is currently in use in institutional and private research labs around the world in many exciting disciplines of nano-science. The LVEM5 is well positioned as an educational tool to give students at the high school and college level an early introduction to nano-science. The LVEM5 will introduce students to three different imaging techniques that are together the fundamental backbone of the nano-sciences; Transmission Electron microscopy (TEM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM). Whether it is developing more efficient solar cells or finding a new cancer treatment, the LVEM5 is well suited to prepare students for entry into many areas of the materials or life-sciences.
The LVEM5 allows the proffessors and technicians to introduce students to all areas of nano science. Real hands-on experience in the classroom with three different types of nano-imaging techniques commonly used in industry will certainly give your students a competitive edge upon entry into the workforce. Different then AFM (Atomic Force Microscopy) or DLS (Dynamic Light Scattering), Electron Microscopy gives students the ability to actually see what it is they are working with.
The LVEM5 is well suited for use in undergradute teaching labs as well as project driven, self learning curriculums.
