06 mrt Webinar: An Evolutionary Era of 120kV TEM: New Technologies, Digital Designs, Automation, Sample Prep and More!

Krefeld | March 20, 2018

On Tuesday, March 20th, 2018 (7.00PM-7.45PM CET), Hitachi High-Technologies will be hosting a webinar titled “An Evolutionary Era of 120kV TEM: New Technologies, Digital Designs, Automation, Sample Prep and More!”, presented by Jim Kilcrease, PhD. 

With 2018 comes an evolution of impactful discoveries, key figures, and developmental technologies. The field of electron microscopy holds true to this notion and unveils new instrumentation to address modern challenges.

The Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) first entered the fields of biological and material science in the early 1930’s adding new capabilities to the world of microscopy that were not previously attainable. Today, developments of key features for TEM systems, including automation, robust software, digital designs, ergonomics, high resolution, and high contrast, have become nothing short of a necessity. To meet and exceed these needs, the Hitachi HT7800 TEM Series was developed.

With sub-2 angstrom resolution and the highest contrast in its class, the HT7800 incorporates advanced technologies to yield an electron microscope capable of easy operation by new and experienced users alike, whereby providing dual imaging modes, higher efficiency, excellent imaging quality, increased ergonomics, and adaptability for future needs. Additionally, the HT7800 Series encompasses technologies for in-situ analysis, tomography, Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS), Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM), ionic liquids, cryogenic analysis, electron diffraction, Correlative Light-Electron Microscopy (CLEM), and more.

Please join us to experience and explore the modern age of electron microscopy featuring the Hitachi HT7800 Transmission Electron Microscope Series.
