Electron: Philips 420 Transmission Microscope


The Philips 420 is equipped with a LaB6 filament and has an accelerating voltages up to 120Kv for enhanced resolution, making it especially suitable for users working with nanomaterials.   A new AMT 4000 camera has recently been added to the system to provide high resolution digital imaging.  The instrument is also equipped with an EDAX Genesis X-ray microanalysis system for materials elemental characterization. This instrument is ideal for both biological and materials research.
