LVEM5 installed at Los Alamos National Laboratory

Los Alamos National Laboratory has selected the LVEM5 Benchtop electron microscope to add to its research instrumentation. The microscope was installed for at the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies.

The LVEM5 was installed in the lab of Jennifer Hollingsworth for a focus on the development of new synthetic approaches to novel functional optical nanomaterials from semiconductor quantum dots to nanowires to hybrid composite nanomaterials.

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.

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.
