Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) @ University of Limerick Bernal Institute (UL)

Institution University of Limerick Bernal Institute (UL)
County Limerick
Technique Category Image Analysis / Microscopy
Technique Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)

Basic Capabilities

Microscopy: observation of submicron particles. Elemental composition (not Carbon). Diffraction of crystals. Atomic resolution imaging.


Equipment Make JEOL
Equipment Model JEM-2100F


Advantage of Technique/Equipment

Site selective compositional analysis and diffraction. Only needs small amount of material (tip of microspatula). Top magnification of 1.5 Mx

Limitations of Technique/Equipment Material needs to be vacuum compatible. Material needs to be stable under the beam. Material needs to be electron transparent (1-200 nm)for some tests. Sample must be dry.

Other Details

Containment None. If sample is volatile, it is unsuitable for vacuum.
