Transmission Electron Microscope

Transmission Electron Microscopy Station (TEM Station) has been established for the research and development (R&D) of TEMs 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.
