Titan ETEM G2 for Materials Science

Providing a detailed understanding of the structure-performance relationship and atomic-scale insight

For scientists focusing on atomic-scale research, it is extremely important to be able to observe structure dynamics in situ at length scales that are characteristic for these nanostructures. The Titan ETEM G2 combines both standard TEM and dedicated environmental TEM capabilities, thereby designed as a fully integrated platform for in situ experiments such as exposing nanostructures to gaseous reaction/operating environments. With the Titan ETEM G2, you can:

  • Gain insight to geometric and electronic structure, as well as elemental composition of functional nanomaterials at nanometer and atomic scale.
  • Observe functional nanomaterials and their time-resolved response to gas and other in situ stimuli.
  • Study gas-solid interactions, including shape and morphology changes as well as interaction at surfaces and interfaces of nanostructures.
  • Perform traditional, high-vacuum TEM experiments. Although designed for environmental TEM applications, the Titan ETEM G2 capably performs HR-S/TEM imaging, diffraction, and spectroscopy.

Environmental Transmission Electron Microscope for dynamic in situ exploration of functional nanomaterials and devices at the nanometer and atomic scale

Built on FEI's world-class Titan TEM platform, the Titan ETEM G2 atomic-resolution Scanning/Transmission Electron Microscope (STEM) is an all-in-one solution for time-resolved in situ studies of dynamic behavior of nanomaterials during exposure to gaseous environments. FEI's newest ETEM generation features an innovative differentially-pumped specimen area compatible with standard TEM holders for easy sample handling and full double tilt capability. The software-controlled user interface offers a range of settings to accommodate handling by novices as well as by advanced operators. A mass spectrometer allows determination of gas composition, while a built-in plasma cleaner allows for cleaning after using a gas. Built with the utmost consideration to safe operation, the Titan ETEM G2 complies fully with safety regulations and protocols for gas handling. Titan ETEM G2 is a flexible, easy-to-use solution for imaging of static specimens, observing nanomaterials' dynamic response to the applied stimulus, and observing growth, function, reliability, and breakdown of nanodevices.
