Role:
Dave has completed the installation, commissioning and roll-out of a new JEOL ARM200F TEM/STEM. The instrument is fitted with a cold FEG source and a large Area (1 steradian) JEOL EDS detector and a GIF. It is single (probe) aberration corrected, and is the first JEOL aberration corrected TEM/STEM to be installed in Australia. The instrument is fully supported by Dave and one colleague, giving internal and external users access to high-end characterisation capabilities.
