The LGO litholamellage and milling plant includes sawing and grinding rock equipment as well as equipment for manufacturing thin sections and polished sections.
The laboratory is equipped with several polarizing microscopes for the observation of thin sections in transmitted or reflected light, as well as several binocular microscopes for the observation and sorting of minerals or fossils. A high definition digital camera allows the acquisition of high quality images.
We have access to the electron microprobe, called “Microsonde Ouest”, jointly acquired between Ifremer, the universities of Brest, Rennes and Nantes, and the UNSA Rennes. This microprobe is installed on the Ifremer site.
