An Electron Microprobe in the Classroom: A Remote-Access System for Education part of NAGT:Teaching Resources:Teaching Materials Collection
In 2003, the University of Minnesota's Electron Microprobe Laboratory implemented a new system for remote research and education via the Internet. The remote-access system allows real-time access to our microprobe using only standard web browsers. Students can, for instance, view electron images of a thin section, ask for certain grains to be analyzed, and see the resulting X-ray spectra.
