LVEM5 installed at Sandia National Labs

The Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) at the Sandia National Labs has selected the LVEM5 Low voltage TEM to be added to their research instrumentation. The Low voltage imaging capabilities of the LVEM5 will give the team much needed contrast when imaging soft materials. The LVEM5 is capable of imaging in TEM, SEM and STEM modes.  The group hopes to leverage this wide flexibility to help advance their diversified research.

The research is centered around the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials.  There is a particular emphasis on inorganic nanoparticles and polymeric nanofilms, and nanocomposites formed from these building blocks.  Current activities include the synthesis of magnetic nanoparticles including iron, iron oxides and alloys, surface initiated polymerizations, synthesis of novel surfactants, thermally responsive polymeric materials, nanocomposites, and a range of self-assembly phenomena.
