Infrastructure - TEM Gemini Centre
The TEM Gemini Centre currently has four Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEM). Three JEOL instruments were installed as part of the NORTEM project in 2013: JEM-2100 (LaB6), JEM-2100F and a double corrected JEM-ARM200F, and in addition one older TEM still in use. We also have a well equipped sample preparation laboratory and computing facilities.

Transmission electron microscopes (TEM)
The Jeol TEMs are included in a Jeol Competence Centre. Three of the Jeol TEMs are part of the NORTEM project. Together the microscopes cover a broad range of techniques and access levels.
Sample preparation laboratory
We have a well equipped computer lab located in Realfagbygget 4th floor. The computer lab includes four computers specialized for tomography, ARM offline tools and ASTAR, while the final one is a more general use PC with a scanner attached. Programs include INCA and AZtec (for EDX analysis), JEMS, and various plugins for Digital Micrograph. We also have a mac with programs such as CrystalKit and MacTempas.
