RMIT Microscopy and Microanalysis Facility

The RMIT Microscopy and Microanalysis Facility (RMMF) houses high-quality electron microscopy and microanalysis equipment.

We have electron microscopes and a few other special instruments to provide high magnification imaging, and micro-analysis capabilities, primarily for the benefit of RMIT researchers, but also for research collaborations with people from other universities, research organisations and industry.

Occasionally fee-for-service work may be considered, if staff time permits.

The RMMF is a linked lab of the Microscopy Australia. RMIT researchers have access to any of the instruments in the Microscopy Australia national facility at discounted rates.

The Microscopy Australia website has a technique finder to help you find a suitable technique for your work.

Located at the RMIT City Campus in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, the RMMF is a centralised research facility primarily for the benefit of RMIT researchers.
