FEI-Tecnai F20

sorry

Cs-corrected 80-200 keV TEM equipped with Schottky Field-Emission Gun; point resolution 0.1 nm, suitable for high-resolution conventional imaging and holography; hardware Cs-correction at 80 kV and 200 kV facilitating high-resolution investigation; Cs-corrected pseudo Lorentz lens for measurements under field-free conditions; rotatable biprism for off-axis electron holography, special holographic setups developed for covering field of views from the µm-range down to 10 nm; 2k x 2k CCD camera; dedicated Digital Micrograph image acquisition and processing software.

 
Philips CM200 FEG

sorry

Lorentz 200 keV TEM equipped with Schottky Field-Emission Gun; 0.12 nm information limit; Lorentz lens for magnetic sample measurements at medium resolution under field-free conditions; biprisms above and below sample for electron holography and special illumination setups; GATAN Imaging Filter GIF200 for EELS, EFTEM and Inelastic Holography; 1k x 1k CCD-camera; dedicated Digital Micrograph image acquisition and processing software.
Both TEMs can be fitted with a variety of dedicated sample holders facilitating tomographic and in-situ experiments:
- GATAN single tilt cryo holder + cryo shields for investigating soft matter and performing in-situ temperature experiments,
- GATAN Model 628 single tilt heating holder for performing in-situ temperature experiments,
- dual-axis tomography holder Fishione Model 2040,
- advanced tomography holder Fishione Model 2020,
- self-made in-situ electric field and illumination (LED, LASER) facility,
- standard single tilt holders,
- standard double tilt holders.
