This state-of-the-art s/TEM, incorporating a probe spherical aberration corrector for electron optic system and the maximum level of electrical and mechanical stability, has achieved a scanning transmission image (STEM-HAADF) resolution of 0.078 nm, the highest in the world among the commercial transmission electron microscopes.

The electron probe, after its aberrations are corrected, features a current density level higher by an order of magnitude than conventional transmission electron microscopes. With this probe finely focused, the ARM200F is capable of atomic level analysis. It operates at 200kV, 120kV and 80kV.

This microscope is equipped with the following:

  • Cold Field Emission Gun
  • Upgraded GIF QuantumSE™ imaging filter with 1 µs Electrostatic fast shutter
  • Gatan BF/DF, HAADF STEM detectors
  • JEOL BF/HAADF STEM detectors
