The new upcoming Rock Deformation Lab at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Lab #007 at building #60)
The new 'Griggs' type solid medium apparatus for deformation under high temperature and pressure conditions (up to 1300 C and 3 GPa). The apparatus is installed at the Rock Deformation lab at Ben-Gurion University.
We often use scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with the electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) sensor in the Ilse Katz Institute for Nanoscale Science & Technology at BGU. The EBSD allows constructing orientation maps of polished sections with down to sub-micron step size. The EBSD is a powerful tool in the study of the rock texture and deformation at the grain and sub-grain scales.
