Since the beginning of 1995 the AG is a digital geology, "software controlled" scanning electron microscope (SEM), type: Leica Stereoscan 430 available, which is equipped with the following detectors:

- SE-Detektor (Oberflächenuntersuchungen)

- BSE-Detektor (Elementkontrastuntersuchungen)

- EDX-Detektor (Elementbestimmung mittels Röntgenstrahlung)

- KL-Detektor (Kathodolumineszenzuntersuchungen)

Construction and operation:

The essential components of an SEM are an electron column, a vacuum sample chamber and the associated detectors systems. Similarly, a filament is heated and excited to emit electrons, a filament (tungsten filament). The electrons are accelerated in the electron column and bundled with magnetic lenses. This produces the primary electron beam which is focused onto an electrically conductive sample in the sample chamber at a high vacuum. Through a line generator, the beam is linewise scanned over the sample. This principle gives the device its name. Thus, the SEM operates similarly to a light microscope. The information provided by each point of the sample is collected with detectors and processed to form an image. The magnification range is repeatedly 20-100000.

Applications:

- Essentially it is used for illustration rough surfaces - analysis of particulate samples (rock, mineral fragments)
- Micropaleontology (foraminifera, conodonts, etc.) - Analysis of synthetic products (powder) - "Micromounts"
- aerosols - clay minerals, soils, heavy minerals - Materials Analysis (product testing) - Quality assurance (building materials, metals)
- Materials ResearchContract work carried out for:.... Fa Leube, Fa Weberberger Quarzolith, Eternit Fa, Fa Bosch, Gmundner CeramicsThe Department of Geography and Geology combines social and scientific research groups.

The Department of Geography and Geology is responsible for the courses of study Geography and Geology. Together with the Interfaculty Department of Geoinformatics Z_GIS he shares responsibility for the Master Program in Applied Geoinformatics.

    „UNInteressant? – "Ideas that will improve our lives": With this slogan Universities Austria (uniko) is launching an online-campaign, in which all of the 22 public universities will cooperate with the Austrian Science Fund the FWF.
    17:00 FRANK MAX MÜLLER (Salzburg/Gießen): The collective is dead, long live the collective! 1968 and the ongoing search for models of cooperation in the arts // REGISTRATION for the online lectures by E-Mail to: Anna.Estermann@sbg.ac.at // https://w-k.sbg.ac.at/figurationen-des-uebergangs
    01.09.-12.09.2020, https://ditact.ac.at. Due to the current pandemic situation the ditact_womens IT summer studies of the University of Salzburg will take place a week later than planned, from the 01.09.-12.09.2020. Most of the courses will be held online.
    The Vice Rectorate for Research, Nicola Hüsing, received five thousand face masks, which were donated by Gebrüder Woerle Ges.m.b.H. in keeping with the motto „SHARING is CARING“ . The face masks were given out to the employees of the University of Salzburg.
    Due to the current situation personal contact with the Psychological Counseling Center is not possible at the moment. We are however available by e-mail, telephone, chat or video chat. Unfortunately, our normal range of workshops cannot take place in the usual way. We would however like to offer the following webinars as an alternative.
    We are gradually learning how to adapt to the Corona outbreak, both in our everyday lives as well as at the university. For us, this means changing to online teaching for the duration of the current semester. Courses and exams held in lecture halls and seminar rooms will not be possible, with exception to some special exams. Regulations for this are currently being drawn up; exceptions are also to be made for selected laboratory exercises and practical sports courses.
    Information of 23rd April 2020: The Minister of Science’s new ruling on special regulations for study law at universities has now been announced, which gives us the opportunity to regulate some important matters. Please note that these regulations have been set for a limited time period (i.e. for this semester, but sometimes even beyond this).
