The Robert D. Ogg Electron Microscope Laboratory (EML) is located at 26 Giannini Hall in the North basement. The EML is an instruction and research unit of the College of Letters and Sciences, providing EM services to the Berkeley campus, the academic community and private companies at large.

The EML provides three basic types of service:

  • Education and training
  • Equipment for trained users
  • Full service microscopy for pilot studies

All are available to anyone with an interest in electron microscopy: graduate and undergraduate students, post-doctoral researchers, faculty, staff and non-UC users.


The EML provides basic to advanced training in all aspects of transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), from specimen preparation to image processing. Undergraduate or graduate students who enroll in either MCB 481B or MCB 481C receive training at NO CHARGE. These courses are offered every semester and are usually given as individual tutorials. Training for non-students is also available for a fee at an hourly rate. The final cost of the training will be determined by what the trainee wishes to learn and the extent of their previous experience.


One of the most cost effective ways to determine if EM is applicable to your research is for the EML to perform a Pilot Study. We do all the work with the material you provide for a fee at an hourly rate. If it is determined that EM is suitable for your research we will train your student/staff/post-doctoral fellow as described above. Please note that this is a one-time service and it is just to establish the feasibility of using EM for particular projects. Large numbers of samples will NOT be processed as a part of this service.
