High Voltage Electron Microscope

The High Voltage Electron Microscopy Station (HVEMS) has been established for the research and development (R&D) of HVEMs and related instrumentation for nano-characterization and study of material systems, and for utilization by users including those who are not specialists of TEM. The focus of the R&D is the dynamic observation of materials on the atomic scale, improvement in spatial resolution, advanced spectroscopic characterization of materials and, development of systems for remote operation and so on.

Contact Researcher;
Hideki Yoshikawa

Specification
Maximum analyzing energy of photoelectrons is 6 keV. Energy resolution reaches 60 meV under the condition that 6 keV X-rays are monochromatized by Si(333) channel-cut-crystal.
Installation location
SPring-8 NIMS beamline BL15XU
Potential
Owing to long observation depth, high energy XPS is powerful to clarify the electronic structure and chemical bonding of functional devices which have nano-meter-sized layer structures. Moreover, high-resolution valence-band-analysis enables to evaluate the energy level of carriers in electron.
