TEM Gemini Centre currently has 3 TEMs - a Jeol 2010F, a Philips CM30 and a Jeol 2010. In 2013 three new TEMs will be installed as part of the NorTEM project: a Jeol 2100, a Jeol 2100F and a Jeol double corrected coldFEG Arm. We have a well equipped sample preparation lab and own computer facilties.
The 2010F is our field emission gun (FEG) TEM, and offers many advanced techniques compared to the other machines. During the last years we have paid particular attention to further develop competence on STEM (scanning transmission electron microscopy), and EELS (electron energy loss spectroscopy) and to increase the user friendliness of advanced techniques. It will be replaced by a 2100F Autumn 2013. More information about the Jeol 2010F.
The Jeol 2010 TEM at DMSE is an electron microscope facility that supports NTNU multi- disciplinary materials science research, with main focus on DMSE PhD research activities on metallic materials. In addition it is used to assist research activities done at other NTNU departments. Over the last years there has been an increased focus on characterisation of functional materials, catalysts and nanostructured materials. More information about the Jeol 2010.
The CM30 is now 24 years old, still performing well and is still central in teaching and research activities. We keep it ‘alive' as long as possible, also after the NorTEM machine become operational. More information about the CM30.
The group has a broad range of specimen preparation equipment for different materials and geometries. We have for many years worked systematically to establish the Tripod polishing technique for cross section TEM specimens. More information about the sample preparation lab.
The computing facility has several computers with an assortment of analysation software. More information about the computing facilities.
