The National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) will participate in the EXCITE project via the INSU national platform: EBSD-GM – High resolution crystallographic mapping by electron backscattered diffraction, which hosts the CrystalProbe-Montpellier – the CNRS infrastructure participating in the EXCITE proposal. The INSU EBSD-GM platform is hosted by Géosciences Montpellier.
The CrystalProbe-Montpellier infrastructure is a field emission gun (FEG) SEM equipped with an ultra-fast and ultra-sensitive EBSD camera – the Symmetry from Oxford Instruments – and an EDS detector allowing simultaneous crystallographic and chemical mapping of thin sections or polished sections.
The CNRS-INSU platform that hosts the CrystalProbe-Montpellier infrastructure has high-quality electron microscopy and sample preparation facilities.
