LVEM5 installed at Florida Polytechnic University
Florida Polytechnic University has selected the LVEM5 Benchtop electron microscope to add to its research instrumentation. The microscope was installed for use in the Nanotechnology Program
The Nanotechnology Program will aid in developing student proposals for funded research and specific business applications with real-world time and budget requirements. Students will aim to develop pioneering next-generation medical devices, drug delivery systems, computer chips, batteries, and lightweight materials with the help of the LVEM5 electron microscope. Other application areas indclude Improving the efficiency of fuel cells and reducing the cost of fuel cell production. Advancing nanotechnology for clean air and carbon emission reduction.
The LVEM5 is the only desktop TEM on the market that allows for hands on student use. The LVEM5 is also capable of preforming electron diffraction. The LVEM5 is capable of 1.2nm resolution in TEM mode and 3nm in SEM mode.
The LVEM5 benefits from a 5kv electron source that means that you can visualize light weight materials such as biological tissue without the need for heavy metal stains. This is a huge advantage for users who want to get a greater understanding of their materials, and not their stain.
