State of the Art Tools
for Electron Microscopy
The National Center for High Resolution Electron Microscopy
(nCHREM) offers expertise in imaging, element analysis, and sample
preparation for a wide variety of sample types.
A few examples of samples recently
imaged at nCHREM
- semiconducting nanowires
- crystalline mesoporous materials
- protein adsoption on zeolites materials
We have equipment for plunge-freezing of liquids and cryogenic
imaging. It is also possible to make thin slices by microtome
sectioning, if required.
The facility is situated within the Chemical
Center at Lund
University, in southern Sweden.
Jeol 3000F analytical high-resolution (scanning) transmission electron
microscope. Equipped with a SDD X-ray detector and a Gatan Imaging
Filter. Attainable point resolution is 0.17 nm in conventional TEM and
0.13 for the high angle annular dark field detector in scanning
