Summary of "Transmission Electron Microscope Using a Linear Accelerator."

High-voltage transmission electron microscopes (HVTEMs), which can visualize internal structures of micron thick samples, intrinsically have large instrument sizes because of the static voltage isolation. In this Letter, we develop a compact HVTEM, employing a linear accelerator, a subpicosecond beam chopper, and a linear decelerator. 100 kV electrons initially accelerated by a static field are accelerated at radio frequency (rf) up to 500 kV, transmitting through the sample and finally rf decelerated down to 200 kV to be imaged through a 200 kV energy filter. 500 kV imaging, as well as subnanometer resolution at 200 kV, have been demonstrated.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A tomographic technique for obtaining 3-dimensional images with transmission electron microscopy.

Identification and measurement of ELEMENTS and their location based on the fact that X-RAYS emitted by an element excited by an electron beam have a wavelength characteristic of that element and an intensity related to its concentration. It is performed with an electron microscope fitted with an x-ray spectrometer, in scanning or transmission mode.

An analytical transmission electron microscopy method using an electron microscope fitted with an energy filtering lens. The method is based on the principle that some of the ELECTRONS passing through the specimen will lose energy when they ionize inner shell electrons of the atoms in the specimen. The amount of energy loss is dependent upon the element. Analysis of the energy loss spectrum (ELECTRON ENERGY-LOSS SPECTROSCOPY) reveals the elemental composition of a specimen. It is used analytically and quantitatively to determine which, how much of, and where specific ELEMENTS are in a sample. For example, it is used for elemental mapping of PHOSPHORUS to trace the strands of NUCLEIC ACIDS in nucleoprotein complexes.

Methods of preparing tissue specimens for visualization using an electron microscope, usually a scanning electron microscope. The methods involve the creation of exact copies of the specimens by making a mold or cast (i.e., replica) of the specimen.

A type of TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY in which the object is examined directly by an extremely narrow electron beam scanning the specimen point-by-point and using the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen to create the image. It should not be confused with SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY.
