 Additional Specification:

> Specimen holder is double tilt in ( α & β ) direction, which gives the ability to be sure that the particle is two dimension or three



 > α-tilting nearly up to ± 45 degree.

> β-tilting nearly up to ± 29 degree.


Electron beam diffraction:

* Giving pattern which is interesting to consider three types of solid matter: single crystals, polycrystals and amorphous materials.

Diffraction pattern for Single crystalline material                                                             Diffraction pattern for polycrystalline material

Diffraction pattern for Single crystalline material          Diffraction pattern for polycrystalline material

Dark Field (DF):

> Dark field image to show the atoms which diffract the electron beam with same angle. The glowing particles in the DF image indicate to the atoms which diffract the electron beam to give the third ring in the diffraction pattern .

Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope unit (STEM):

> Magnification up to 10 Mx.

> Resolution 1 nm.

> Supporting for EDX unit in Mapping, Line and point analysis.

EDX (Energy Dispersive X-rays).

> Making semi quantitative analysis.

> Mapping, Point and Line analysis are available.
