How it All Started

The facility for high resolution electron microscopy, within the Chemical Center at Lund University, was established in 1987 by foundations from the Swedish National Science Council, the Swedish Technical Development Board and the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation. The purpose was to provide the Swedish science community with state-of-the-art tools for electron microscopy, high-level education and training of students and researchers, and advancing the knowledge in the field.

The facility provides a focus for developing theory and practice of HREM and the associated aspects of analytical electron microscopy and electron diffraction. It provides advanced instruments for investigation in many fields of solid state science. The National Center for High-Resolution Electron Microscopy (nCHREM) is a research facility connected to Polymer & Materials Chemistry.
