200kV FEG, Gatan 626 side-entry cryo holders (LN2 temperature), FEI Ceta 16M Pixel CMOS camera, STEM function.
A home-built Timepix detector will be installed underneath the Ceta camera (Abrahams group). The Talos is built in a box, which reduces its sensitivity to environmental disturbances.
The FEI Talos™ transmission electron microscope (TEM) is a powerful, versatile electron system for delivering 3D characterization of biological and biomaterials samples in cell biology, structural biology, and nanotechnology research. The Talos enables researchers to quickly obtain better insight and understanding of macromolecular structures, cellular components, cells and tissues in three dimensions.
The system's constant-power, C-Twin lens delivers outstanding optical performance to help ensure an optimal balance of contrast and resolution. FEI Talos' ultra-stable platform includes a piezo stage with stable electronics and a rugged system enclosure for maximum thermal and mechanical stability.
