Welcome to the MSSEM/CoMAS website!

A word from our President...

Heather Lowers

The Mountain States Society of Electron Microscopists and Colorado Microbeam Analysis Society is a Local Affiliated Society of the Microscopy Society of America and the Microanalysis Society, respectively. MSSEM/CoMAS mostly serves micrscopists and microanalysts along the Colorado Front Range corridor but has members as far away as New Mexico, Wyoming, and Utah. We welcome all government, academic, and industry professionals, students, and vendors with an interest in microscopy and microanalysis.

The Society generally holds two meetings a year, in the Spring and Fall, where local and national experts share recent innovations in the field and networking opportunities abound. After a hiatus of several years, MSSEM/CoMAS is rejuvenated. Please share your comments and suggestions as to how the Society can better meet your needs. Check back often for updates and information regarding upcoming events.
