Powering our future

Electron microscopy plays a critical role in efforts to improve the efficiencies and economics of developing geological fuel sources (such as oil, gas, and mining). For example, the ability to accurately assess the porosity of shale through the use of electron microscopy can make the difference between a low-cost, efficient extraction of natural gas versus a high-cost, time-intensive effort that may ultimately fail.

Nuclear is another form of energy that benefits from electron microscopy, including the analysis of cracks in metal tubing, as well as revealing hydrogen embrittlement.

Looking toward the future, electron microscopy is playing a key role in research into alternative fuels and fuel storage technologies, including biofuels, photovoltaics, and fuel cells.

Fischione offers numerous products that support electron microscopy for energy applications.
