Abstract : This report describes the status of a transmission electron microscopy system that was purchased through a grant entitled Request for a High Voltage/High Resolution Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope. The microscope purchased is Philips EM 43OT; accessories bought with the microscope are an energy-dispersive x-ray spectrometer (EDS) and an electron energy loss spectrometer (EELS). The tests at all modes of analysis have been completed and the results indicate that the instrument and its peripherals operate at their expected performance. The system has already proven to be an indispensable tool in projects on the development of advanced materials and it is expected that it will serve as a primary characterization tool in future projects.
