CIME is a central facility in electron microscopy dedicated to studies in solid state physics, material science and life sciences. It gathers most of the EPFL equipment for electron microscopy together with an experienced staff. This situation leads to the availability of the widest set of observation techniques at a minimum cost of investments.

It guarantees to all persons interested in electron microscopy – researcher or students of EPFL, co-workers of other universities or private laboratories – to get access to the best suited technique for their purpose.

To stay competent and open-minded to the users questions, CIME leads its own research and development activity.
