Microscope: FEI Titan Themis3

The FEI Titan Themis3 S/TEM is one of the most advanced electron microscopy platform to date, capable of imaging and spectroscopy at the atomic level. Equipped with multiple cameras and detectors, the Titan Themis provides simultaneous information about position, bonding, and composition of atoms, and can be used to obtain nm-resolution 3D reconstructions and electric field maps. The Titan is not an entry-level microscope and users requesting training should have significant experience on other instruments. A spring semester class is available to users.
