Electron Optics Facility


The JEOL JEM-2010 TEM is a high resolution transmission electron microscope.



The JEOL JEM-2010 is a high resolution transmission electron microscope that can be operated between 80 and 200 kV accelerating voltage. The JEM-2010 is configured with a high brightness LaB6 source for convergent and nano beam electron diffraction. The instrument is configured with several useful accessories, including a Gatan Orius SC200 high-speed digital camera and an Oxford energy dispersive spectrometer/4pi workstation. Together, these systems permit advanced microstructural and compositional studies of a wide variety of organic and inorganic materials.
