FEI Tecnai G2 Spirit (Twin) Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) Electron Microscopes

Model: 
Tecnai G2 Spirit (Twin) Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM)
Make: 

The FEI Spirit is a high brightness (LaB6 sourced) high magnification, high resolution, 120kV TEM that is equipped with an ultrathin windowed energy dispersive x-ray analysis system (EDX) allowing for the characterisation of the microstructure and composition of advanced materials encountered in nanotechnology research. It is equipped with Smart Tracking Position System for sample navigation, magnification to 650 000x, Scanning Transmission Mode (STEM), micro/nanoprobe modes, chromatic error correction system giving sharp, high quality images even for thick samples, airlock oil-free pumping to reduce contamination, low dose operation for nanoparticle-polymer composites, good diffraction and tilt range, etc.
