The Microscopy resource center (Centre de Ressources Microscopies) gathers the different microstructural observation means as well as the sample preparation means available at the PIMM. The spatial scales covered range from millimetre to nanometre, allowing multi-scale microstructural analyses to be carried out.
A vast majority of the PIMM research groups use the means described below, both to:
- understand the microstructures of materials generated by the processes used in the laboratory,
- analyse the evolution of microstructures during stress (thermal-hydraulic-mechanical-chemical-temporal...),
- acquire material data to feed models (input data, validation, etc.).
