The HRC Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) facility provides state of the art high-resolution imaging services. In addition, the facility supports research and education in Chemistry, Material Sciences, Nuclear Technology, Metallurgy, Microbiology, and Polymer Science. The TEM is the primary method used to determine structural features such as crystal structure, interfaces, defects, and chemical identification. The device can characterize ceramics, metals, semiconductors, and biological materials, including radioactive materials, at resolutions down to atomic scale.
