The Materials Science TEM, the JEM-3010, is a 300kV transmission electron microscope with a LaB6 electron source which was installed in 1998. It is fitted with an ultra-high resolution pole piece.
Images are collected using a Gatan Orius SC200 CCD camera (2K x 2K) with a Windows XP computer running Digital Micrograph software. This camera is capable of recoding in-situ events at TV rate as well as high resolution images.
The microscope is also fitted with a Thermo Noran Vantage XEDS system with a light element X-ray detector.
Heating (1000 deg C), cooling (-170 deg C) and STM-TEM stages are available for this instrument.
