MLZ is a cooperation between:> Technische Universität München> Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht> Forschungszentrum Jülich
Recently a new transmission electron microscope (TEM) was installed at the MLZ in the Neutron Guide Hall East building (UYM, Room 3.28).
Transmission electron microscopy is a complementary technique with neutron scattering in the frame of soft matter studies. With the TEM, real space investigations are performed to access information about shape, size and size distribution of particles, self-assembly and aggregation. Users will be supported by JCNS scientists (M.S. Appavou) to conduct the suitable preparation and TEM investigation.
The JCNS TEM laboratory is open for users to complement neutron experiments at the MLZ
The objective of the JCNS Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) laboratory is to offer the preparation and investigation of specimen to users who wish to complement their neutron experiments at the MLZ by using TEM either on-site or remotely.
TEM beamline application must be submitted jointly with the related neutron scattering beamtime proposal
Prior to proposal submission it is mandatory for the user to contact the TEM laboratory scientist in order to discuss the feasibility of the research idea and the required time for the TEM investigations.
The terms of the use of the TEM facility are described in the following concept document:
TEM beamtime application has to be done by filling the template for download:
Please inquire further information about the application procedure from Dr. M.-S. Appavou (see contact).
