Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) @ University of Limerick (UL) MSSI

Institution University of Limerick (UL) MSSI
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

Equipment Make JEOL
Equipment Model JEM-2100F

Advantages/Limitations

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.
