Bess MTI provides services in the area of characterization and analysis of metals and alloys, thin films, coatings, polymers, ceramics, glass, and contaminants.

Our Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is equipped with an Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) detector. Our system can provide elemental analysis of solid samples, powders, and impurities. We also provide high resolution imaging for detection of physical and chemical defects. This is an invaluable tool in corrosion examination and quality control, as well as, fundamental researches or industrial services.
