Transmission Electron Microscopy Lab

This lab is devoted to the structural characterization of materials at the nanometer scale, performed with a versatile Transmission Electron Microscope, a FEI Tecnai G2 F20 S-TWIN, 200KV. With this tool it is possible for example to investigate the crystalline structure of the materials by HR-TEM and electron diffraction, to map the composition by EDS and EELS, to reconstruct a 3D image of the sample by tomography.
