Our goal is to support research projects by providing the facilities of our Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) to local research groups.
We offer our service primarily to researchers from the ICP, but also to other local and national institutions like CSIC, UAM and other Universities, OPIs and companies.
Our TEM service is equipped with a TEM/STEM (JEOL 2100F) operating at 200KV with a Field Emission Gun, and a point resolution of 0.19 nm. EDX detector (X-Max80 by Oxford Instruments) is coupled to the TEM, which allows the possibility of semi-quantitative chemical analysis. By using the STEM unit, Z-contrast images as well as the chemical characterization of areas of few nanometers can be done.
A sample preparation laboratory equipped with an ultrasound bath and basic lab material for powder samples is available.
