Chromatem delivers on-site sub-5 meV @ 30 keV

Posted in

While setting up the 30 keV mode of CHROMATEM on site, we got a sub-5 meV zero-loss peak at 30 keV (40 meV at 1/1000). Great achievement!

CHROMATEM has been received

Posted in

The NION machine is still hidden in wooden boxes, with a full team ready to make it deliver some meVs soon...

Our Attolight STEM-CL device has been received

Posted in

We just received the new STEM-CL Mönch 4107  from Attolight to fit our NION CHROMATEM machine. Compare our best VG version (left) to the Attolight one (right). Congrats for the excellent work, guys at Attolight!

CHROMATEM first result

Posted in
First CHROMATEM spectral resolution performance

First spectral resolution tests have been performed on the NION CHROMATEM machine. The machine features 8 meV resolution at 60 keV with 7 pA in the electron probe. This is more than 3 times better than foreseen at the launch of the project in 2011, 40 times better than with current technologies available in our lab, and close to the best performances ever published.
More performances reports soon!
