Overview of Services


The CRANN Advanced Microscopy Laboratory (AML) is a custom designed, 6,000 square foot facility, located in the Trinity Technology and Enterprise Campus. The AML is located close to Grand Canal Quay, less than 10 minutes’ walk from the main TCD campus, in the district dubbed “emerald valley” or "Silicon Docks" by the IDA.


The centre houses a critical mass of high end scanning and imaging electron and ion beam microscopes for sample imaging down to atomic resolution, materials analytics/characterisation, and nanofabrication. Research vision and leadership is provided by CRANN/TCD academics. A dedicated team with blue chip multi-national industrial experience cater for the frontline needs of industry, often leading to longer term industry- academia partnerships.
