The infrastructure is part of nCHREM –a facility located at KILU. At nCHREM there are three transmission electron microscopes and one scanning electron microscope. The microscopes have different specializations but are typically aimed for microscope of soft (including biomolecular specimens) and hard materials.
The microscope is a 200kV TEM equipped with a field emission gun. It is dedicated for cryogenic imaging as well as for tomography studies (both RT and cryo). The microscope is equipped with cryo-holders (Fischione), single-tilt holder (RT, tomography) and double-tilt holder.
Equipment and resources
The infrastructure record digital images with several file formats.
The facility is open for internal (LU) and external users. Operator services are provided by nCHREM
