The Titan E-Cell is a 300kV transmission electron microscope with a spherical aberration corrector on the objective lens (CETCOR unit from the CEOS Company), i.e. the Titan E-Cell is image corrected. It is used primarily for high resolution TEM imaging of nanostructures and interfaces. This microscope is outstanding in the area of in-situ studies. By virtue of the presence of a differential pumping system, imaging of samples in gaseous environments up to pressures of 1000 Pa and temperatures of 1000oC are possible (depending on gas composition). Dynamic events at the atomic level can thus be recorded in real time.
