Electron Microscopy

Electron Microscopy

Equipped with several Transmission (TEM) and Scanning (SEM) Electron Microscopes as well as related sample preparation equipment for the use of the UMass community as well as external customers. The Center serves both materials and life-sciences communities and most of the instruments options are focused on analytical capabilities such as Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDS) and Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS).

  • JEOL- JEM-2200FS EFTEM-The JEOL JEM-2200FS features an in-column Electron Energy Loss Filter for EELS and EFTEM and an Oxford X-MAX 80mm2 Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer. The instrument is setup for analytical applications such as Electron Tomography while still maintaining high-resolution in High Angle Annular Dark Field Imaging.
  • FEI Magellan 400 XHR-SEM-The FEI Magellan 400 XHR-SEM is a thermal field emitter base high resolution microscope featuring an Oxford X-MAX 80mm2 Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer for element mapping. Low-Voltage Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy with HAADF.
  • FEI Tecnai-T12 TEM-The FEI Tecnai-T12 is a life sciences oriented Electron Microscope capable of imaging at cryo-temperatures.
