  • FEI Titan Awarded at Nano Tech 2008
Mar 2008
FEI Co. of Hillsboro, Ore., announced that its Titan 80-300 S/TEM (scanning/transmission electron microscope) received the award for technical excellence in evaluation and measurement at Nano Tech 2008, a nanotechnology conference held last month in Tokyo. Unlike conventional S/TEMs, which require complex computational procedures to reconstruct high resolution images, FEI said the Titan S/TEM's aberration-corrected electron optics provides directly interpretable image resolution at the atomic scale. "The introduction of aberration-corrected TEM is a major breakthrough that gives scientists the ability to directly visualize nanostructures with sub-angstrom imaging resolution. A new model with high resolution EELS (electron-energy-loss spectroscopy) that can provide analytical results with the same high resolution has also been put into practical use," said professor Tomoji Kawai, chairman of the Nano Tech executive committee. Koyo Iwasaki, country director for FEI Japan, accepted the award.

electron optics
The control of free electron movement through the use of electrical or magnetic fields, and use of this electron movement in research investigation of electronic diffraction phenomena, directly analogous to the control of light through the use of lenses.
An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
