Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM)

The 2100 Plus is a conventional TEM designed for high resolution imaging, diffraction and chemical analysis. It has a LaB6 filament operating at 200 keV, with a high resolution small gap pole piece. Images and videos can be recorded on a 5 megapixel camera, with accompanying elemental composition from a EDS silicon drift detector.


  • Energy: 200 kV

TEM’s Acquisition

Dr. Ronald J. Tackett, faculty member in the Kettering University department of Physics, along with collaborators from multiple disciplines across campus were awarded a National Science Foundation – Major Research Instrumentation (NSF-MRI) grant for $452,000 to acquire a TEM in 2015. | Full story.
