Large field of view at high-tilt angles

The Advanced Tomography Holder is a revolutionary room-temperature specimen holder for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) featuring high tilt and extended field of view. It allows data collection over wide tilt and translation ranges, even in restrictive pole-piece gap geometries.

Advances in microstructural characterization require the ability to analyze structure and chemistry in three dimensions. However, most TEM techniques are limited to producing two-dimensional information. Tomography on the other hand, combines two-dimensional data sets taken at various tilt angles to produce a three-dimensional reconstruction. The Advanced Tomography Holder is ideal for electron tomography in the life and physical sciences, as well as any other application requiring high specimen tilt.

No shadows

A streamlined specimen clamping mechanism eliminates the shadowing associated with most holders at high-tilt angles. The clamping mechanism accepts a standard 3 mm diameter TEM specimen and accommodates a wide range of specimen thicknesses. The specimen clamping mechanism produces an evenly distributed force on the specimen.
