Duffield Hall 150
200 kV field emission transmission electron microscope with monochromator. 1 Å in TEM and 1.4 Å in STEM. Equipped with a Gatan tridium spectrometer for electron energy loss spectroscopy spectra at high energy resolution <0.2 eV, optimized recording of energy filtered TEM elemental maps, EELS low-loss studies (e.g. band gap analysis), and chemical bonding information at nanometer resolution. The Tecnai is also able to do electron tomography, which produces 3-D structures from 2-D projections, by acquiring an image every 2 degrees at angles +/- 70 degrees. This is only possible using our tomography holder and specialized software.
