50 Great Moments
Celebrating the Golden Jubilee of the University of Sydney's Electron Microscope Unit
About the book
From its very beginning, the Electron Microscope Unit (EMU) has always been a central facility, serving all departments at the University, and since 1958, countless users and students have visited the EMU, gaining knowledge about microscopy and microanalysis and using the Unit's diverse facilities.
In this book, editor Dr Kyle Ratinac collects some of the highlights of the EMU's rich history, most outstanding achievements, as well as an insight into the Unit’s social life. There is also a list of former and current members of staff.
This book illustrates the growth of the Unit and its evolution from a small service facility to its current role as Australian Key Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis and headquarters of the Australian Microscopy & Microanalysis Research Facility (AMMRF).
