Services

Sample imaging & analysis

The NSC offers samples imaging and analysis for internal (Kuwait University) and external users.Below are examples of the type of studies that can be carried out in this center:

  1. Full range of sample imaging and microanalysis (e.g. polymers and biopolymers, ceramics, composites, corrosion assessments, fracture studies, catalyst, colloidal systems, nanoparticles, films and nanofilms, metal, conductors and semiconductors, cements, mechanical problems, mud and sand samples, environmental samples, full range of medical and biological samples...etc)  of various biological and material science samples
  2. Surface topography and sample's morphology.
  3. Material and biological image calculation and simulation ( e.g. size distribution and Search Results crystalline structure)
