Our Services

Industry Services
With a continuing tradition of excellence, we are trying to bridge the gap between academic research and pratical problem solving as well as industrial needs.

European EELS & EFTEM School
The joint FELMI/European EELS & EFTEM School is an intense 4-day hands-on laboratory workshop that will take you step-by-step through the acquisition and analysis of Energy Filtered TEM (EFTEM) and STEM-EELS data. The workshop will utilize the state of the art facilities at FELMI-ZFE including a monochromated probe-corrected Titan (S)TEM with a DualEELS GIF Quantum EELS system.

SEM Course
You want to solve analytical problems? You feel you need more experience using scanning electron microscopes? You are interested in materials like steel, ceramics, semiconductors, biological samples and many more? You would like to bring your own sample? Feel free to do so! Our SEM Course will provide to these questions!

ASTEM – The Story Behind

Being able to see and analyse materials at atomic resolution, has been a strong motivation for improving the electron microscope. However, the resolution of the conventional transmission electron microscope (TEM) was limited to around 0.2 nanometre, which is slightly larger than the diameter of atoms.
