Field-emission gun transmission electron microscopy for the research in nanomaterials, metal alloys and biological sciences

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Infrastructure Equipment & Facilities (LIEF)

Abstract


  • This proposal aims to establish an advanced and universal characterization system for research in nanomaterials, light metals, fibre, biomaterials, polymers and nanostructures ceramics. The system is built on a multipurpose, high resolution, electron microscope with a field emission source and four attachments (energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS)/electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS), automatic crystal orientation mapping, nanomanipulator and a cryo-stage). This universal system will meet different research requirements from various fields and from different institutions. The state-of-the art microscopy and the attachments will enhance our leading role in nanomaterials, metals and fibres in the world.
