Double-corrected FEI Titan3 80-300 FEGTEM
Instrument Manager: A/Prof. Laure Bourgeois
Instrument Location: G21 (Microscope) and G20 (Operator’s Room)
Description: A Shottky field emission transmission electron microscope fitted with spherical aberration correctors on the probe and image-forming lens systems. This instrument is capable of imaging atomic structures with a resolution of less than one-tenth of a nanometre. At the same time, it can acquire chemical information selectively from just one or two atomic columns. The microscope configuration includes electron tomography for three dimensional imaging of structures and an energy imaging filter for composition and bonding measurements.
