The Imaging Spectroscopy and Analysis Centre (ISAAC)

The Imaging Spectroscopy and Analysis Centre (ISAAC) offers a range of high quality measurement, characterisation, and analytical services, using a variety of sophisticated scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Raman spectroscopy techniques. SEM imaging can be carried out in high or low vacuum, as well as in environmental mode for ‘wet’ samples. ISAAC has particular expertise in the life sciences, engineering, environmental and geotechnical, and heritage science, where it has assisted industrial customers and publicly-funded organisations with failure analysis, identifying contamination, process optimisation and waste reduction, performance improvements, design innovation, and informing policy and strategic decisions, such as for preservation and conservation.
