Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM)

University of Toronto MIL Transmission Electron Microscope




The Hitachi H-7000 is a 120kV TEM with a tungsten filament electron source 
capable of producing high-resolution digital images from ultra-thin sections or negative
stained samples. The H-7000 operates in regular brightfield zoom mode or selected area
diffraction mode and has a motorized eucentric stage with - 60/+60 degree tilt.  Images are
captured on an Advanced Microscopy Technology XR60 CCD camera.
