Why the EXCITE Network
The EXCITE Network offers you access to leading-edge electron and X-ray imaging facilities, allowing new interactions and collaborations to blossom. Although we are driven by our scientific purpose, we also believe that our initiative delivers social benefits to the scientific community through knowledge sharing and communication of the latest developments.
‘It’s our mission to empower leading-edge research into Earth and planetary materials via electron and X-ray microscopy. To better understand the past, present and future of our planet’
Would you like to tackle pressing scientific questions related to fundamental geological processes or societally relevant topics such as hydrogen storage and environmentally friendly mineral extraction technologies? The power of electron and/or X-ray imaging will help you to characterise Earth materials at multiple length scales and multiple dimensions.
Do you have a research question related to Earth materials? Do you want to use electron or X-ray microscopy or a combination of both? Then talk to us and together we can develop a strategy to tackle your research question.
The European EXCITE Network connects you to electron and X-ray imaging infrastructures, drives Earth-materials research and together we create a positive impact on science, industry, and society.
Curious to learn more?
Twenty-four European facilities for electron and X-ray microscopy are joining hands. To better understand Earth and planetary materials and to together unveil the secret codes hidden under our feet.
