Specifications include, but are not limited to: TEM Operation: The TEM operation must be completely digital. The TEM shall not have binoculars. Instead of binoculars, a sensitive high speed camera must be encapsulated over the viewing screen so that all microscope setup, alignment and sample search procedures can be viewed using a standard computer display in a normally lighted room. The activation of the accelerating voltage, filament voltage, and bias must be automated to minimize user error and allow for fast, easy start-up. High sample throughput is required with easy sample insert and a short pump down time, to enable imaging within less than one minute from sample insertion. The microscope shall not have a film chamber. The absence of such chamber reduces surface area and pump-down time. Automation must be implemented and available for Focus and Stigmation. Manual control must remain available. Auto-trace and digital stage navigation, for increased Region of Interest tracking efficiency, must be integrated. Automatic Pre-Irradiation (API) must be integrated to minimize sample drift and instability for certain sample types. The TEM must have a fully automated and integrated Drift Correction for better image quality under high throughput conditions. An ergonomic table must be available as an option, allowing convenient operation for multiple users, whether sitting or standing. For teaching and presentation purposes: It must be possible to show all operations, from setup to capture, on a large wall display, at a remote location, or recorded to video using common PC accessories.
