Transmission Electron Microscopes
The MCP houses a Thermo Scientific TF30 300 kV TEM that has 0.07 nm line and better than 0.2 nm point-to-point resolution. It is equipped with and Oxford light-element detector for quantitative X-ray analysis (EDX), scanning transmission electron microscope imaging with 0.17 nm resolution in both high-angle annular dark-field and bright field detectors. Added to this is an ASTAR scanning precession electron diffraction system can generate maps of crystal orientations down to 2 nm. The TF30 is also equipped with electron tomography holders and acquisition software. TEM holders available include double-tilt low-background holders for high-resolution TEM and EDX analysis, a heating and a liquid nitrogen cooled stage. A cryostage is available through the Integrated Imaging Center on campus.
