The physics department hosts one of the top electron microscopy centres in the Southern Hemisphere. The Centre for High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy was launched in October 2011. It is situated on the Nelson Mandela University South Campus in Port Elizabeth and houses four state-of-the-art electron microscopes including the only double aberration corrected transmission electron microscope on the African continent. Other instruments include a fully analytical TEM, a focused ion beam scanning electron microscope and an analytical high resolution scanning electron microscope.
