Environmental Transmission Electron Microscope (ETEM) 7580
Libor Kovarik, EMSL scientist, inserts the sample holder into the environmental transmission electron microscope housed in EMSL’s Quiet Wing. EMSL’s ETEM provides in situ capabilities that enable atomic-resolution imaging and spectroscopic studies of materials under dynamic operating conditions. In contrast to traditional operation of TEM under high vacuum, EMSL’s ETEM uniquely allows imaging within high-temperature and gas environments. With a spherical aberration corrector for the objective lens, the ETEM captures atomic-level processes as they occur, enabling vital research across a range of scientific fields. EMSL is a Department of Energy national scientific user facility located at PNNL.
