Electron Microscopy Core

The Electron Microscopy Core integrates a unique bundle of state-of-the-art FEI tools that enable users to address the most complex modern research problems from micron to Angstrom spatial resolution.


  • Mc 7

    Magellan 400

    A field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM) with extra high spatial resolution (XHR) which allows sample imaging at extremely low beam energies (<100 eV), avoiding charge effect at non-conductive nano-scale surfaces

  • Mc 7

    Helios G4 Ux Dual Beam

    Designed for the highest-quality imaging, ultra-thin TEM and APT sample preparation, milling and deposition of complex structures with critical dimensions of less than 10 nm, multi-modal subsurface and 3D data collection

  • Mc 7

    Spectra 300

    Spectra 30-300 (S)TEM – the highest resolution, aberration-corrected, scanning transmission electron microscope for all materials science applications

  • Mc 7

    JEOL 2011

    Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) 80-200kV, 0.14m, resolution, a workhorse for materials and biological samples 

  • Mc 7

    Leica Automatic Plunge Freezer EM GP2

    For the preparation of vitrified fluid samples for cryo-TEM, including biological suspensions in both, aqueous and inorganic solvents

  • Mc 7

    Leica EM UC7 Ultramicrotome

    The Leica EM UC7 ultramicrotome equipped with the FC7 cryo chamber attachment is capable of preparation of high quality semi- and ultra-thin sections of biological and industrial samples
