Transmission Electron Microscopy


JEOL 2100F transmission electron microscope
The JEOL 2100F transmission electron microscope allows researchers to view and map atoms and bonds in any material at temperatures ranging from 50ºC to 1,200ºC. (Alexander Fisher-Wagner/UC Davis)

The JEOL 2100F is a transmission electron microscope (TEM) which is operated in both TEM and scanning-TEM (STEM) configurations. The JEOL 2100F is equipped with a 200 kV Schottky field emission gun, and a CEOS aberration corrector for the probe-forming optics to correct for aberrations up to the third-order. The JEOL 2100F is equipped with a new Gatan Rio 16 CMOS camera for TEM bright field and dark field imaging, and is capable of acquiring 1k x 1k images at 160 frames per second. For chemical and compositional analysis, the JEOL 2100F is equipped with a windowless energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS) system and a post-column Gatan imaging filter (GIF).
