TEM Holders

In order to carry out the broadest range of sophisticated experiments in a TEM it is necessary to have a variety of sample holders that are designed for a specific purpose.

In this respect DTU Cen is equipped as follows:

• Three single tilt Fischione tomography holders (2020, 2040 and 2050)
• FEI single tilt holder
• FEI double tilt holder
• Gatan Be double tilt holder
• Gatan Be double tilt LN2 cooling holder
• Gatan 652 Tantalum heating holder (up to 1000°C)
• Gatan 652 Inconel heating holder (up to 800°C)
• Vacuum transfer heating holder
• Two-contact biasing TEM specimen holder with capability for electron tomography. The maximum applied current is ~100 mA.
• Three-contact biasing TEM specimen holder with capability for electron tomography. The third contact is movable towards the two contact side using micrometers and piezoelectric drives and can be used as a probe for electric measurements. The maximum applied current is ~100 mA.
