Electron Microscopy

TEM uses a beam of electrons transmitted through an ultrathin specimen to provide high resolution, two dimensional images, on the order of nanometers. Sample preparation either requires a solution of isolated material (such as viruses or nanoparticles) or thinly cut slices from embedded samples, which can be prepared with the equipment available in the facility.
