The FEI Helios NanoLab 660 features the most recent advances in field emission SEM (FESEM) and focused ion beam (FIB) technologies and their combined use. This DualBeam SEM/FIB is designed for demanding nanoscale work, resolving the finest details in 2D and 3D with clearest contrast, preparing the thinnest and highest quality samples, and most rapidly creating prototype devices with critical dimensions of a few nanometers only.

The Tecnai Spirit TWIN TEM is a general-purpose high resolution 120 kV TEM for screening and training purpose at both ambient and cryogenic conditions. It is designed with high-level of automation to meet the stringent demands of life science and material research. The Spirit produces excellent 2D and 3D images due to special automated and semi-automated functionality.

The Titan Halo 80-300 TEM benefits from excellent optical performance of Titan family and focuses on versatility in application in soft matter research and life sciences. The 300 kV provides larger electron penetration depth which is crucial for soft matters and thicker biological sections. The Titan optics ensures optimal parallel illumination over a wide range of magnification and field of view for minimized aberrations.

The FEI Titan Themis 200 is a 200 kV transmission electron microscope that has been developed for stability and flexibility. With a Cs corrected platform to deliver the fastest time to data with high image quality, the FEI Titan Themis 200 performance enables atomic scale discovery and exploration. This microscope can deliver fast, precise and quantitative materials characterization in multiple dimensions at the physical edge of today’s achievable resolution power.

The TCS SP8 STED 3X, the newest generation of STED (Stimulated Emission Depletion) microscopy by Leica Microsystems, provides super-resolution imaging in all dimensions. The integrated STED system meets the requirements of daily scientific research and provides fast, intuitive, and pure optical access to structural details beyond the diffraction limit. STED 3X broadens the scope of super-resolution microscopy by offering the whole spectrum of visible light. It is able to reach lateral (XY) resolution of ~50 nm and axial (Z) resolution of ~150nm.

Raman imaging is non-destructive imaging techniques, no staining of fixation of sample is required. Raman imaging generates hyperspectral images with the information of a complete Raman spectrum at every image pixel. WITec alpha300R confocal Raman microscope enables confocal Raman imaging (both surface-scan and depth-scan) with excellent resolution and capability of time series. The ultra-high throughput spectroscopic system guarantees high sensitivity and best performance in spectral resolution.
