- Olympus Canada to Distribute Hitachi Tabletop SEM
MARKHAM, Ontario, April 30, 2010 — Hitachi High-Technologies Canada has partnered with Olympus Canada Inc., naming the latter company as the exclusive distributor of its TM3000 tabletop scanning electron microscope (SEM) in Canada.
The fully automated tabletop SEM can achieve 30,000X magnification, has a superior depth of field and is easy to use, making it a suitable complement to the former company’s portfolio of optical microscopes and digital cameras, said the company.
It is suitable for R&D, materials, semiconductor, food products, nano- and biotechnology, life sciences, pharmaceuticals and education applications.
With the addition of the product, Olympus can now offer its clients a complete range of imaging solutions from macro to nano.

- digital camera
- A camera that converts a collected image into pixels that are black or white digital or shades of gray. The digital data may then be manipulated to enhance or otherwise modify the resulting viewed image.
- The ratio of the size of the image of an object to that of the object. The ratio of the linear size of the image to that of the object is lateral magnification. Angular magnification is the ratio of the apparent angular size of the image observed through an optical device to that of the object viewed by the unaided eye. Longitudinal magnification is the ratio of the longitudinal or axial dimension of an image to the corresponding dimension of the object.
- 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 use of atoms, molecules and molecular-scale structures to enhance existing technology and develop new materials and devices. The goal of this technology is to manipulate atomic and molecular particles to create devices that are thousands of times smaller and faster than those of the current microtechnologies.
