An aberration corrected analytical transmission electron microscope for nanoscale characterisation of materials

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Infrastructure Equipment & Facilities (LIEF)

Abstract


  • This state-of-the-art scanning transmission electron microscope (S-TEM) will have the highest spatial resolution in NSW and be only the second of this kind in Australia. The existing TEM at UOW is 10 years old and cannot support the research requirements of three large materials-based institutes (~160 staff and students) in areas of functional nano-materials, steels, light metals and polymers. This microscope will also enhance research capabilities of Deakin and Newcastle Universities, ANSTO, CRC DMTC and two ARC Centres of Excellence. It will enable atomic and nanoscale structure/composition/chemical analyses, including investigations of electron beam sensitive materials. It is a critical high-end research tool for many projects.
