Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy

Monash Centre for Electron Microscopy (MCEM)



MCEM is a central university research facility that:

  • conducts research in electron microscopy and atom probe microscopy, and
  • provides advanced instrumentation, expertise and training in electron microscopy and atom probe microscopy.

MCEM serves and collaborates with researchers from Monash University, other universities, government research agencies and industry. It provides a complementary facility to the Australian Synchrotron, which is adjacent to Monash Clayton campus.

The MCEM suite of advanced instrumentation can determine the composition, structure and bonding of materials down to the atomic scale. Five major new instruments have been installed, including Australia’s first “double-aberration-corrected” electron microscope, which is the highest resolution microscope in Australia and one of just a handful worldwide.
