Electron Microscopy

Electron microscopes are instruments for high resolution and high magnification imaging. We have a 200kV Transmission Electron Microscope from JEOL, and a Scanning Electron Microscope from Hitachi.

The Transmission Electron Microscope is mainly used for routine biological and nanomaterial TEM studies. The system can be operated at various acceleration voltages (80kV, 100kV, 120kV and 200kV). It is integrated with a Gatan 2K x 2K CCD camera for acquiring high-resolution images.

The Scanning Electron Microscope is a variable pressure microscope. It is used for scanning samples which do not require any pre-processing, as well as processed samples after coating with metals. This system is being used to analyze topographical patterns and changes of various samples.
