Equipments Details


Tampere Microscopy Center (TMC) is the university-level infrastructure. It provides instruments, training and services for researchers in Tampere University and through research collaboration also for other research institutes and industry. Our goal is to train our users to work independently and offer support to help them become experts.

Tampere Microscopy Center offers versatile selection of instruments to help you get to know your samples inside out.

Analytical (scanning) transmission electron microscope (Jeol F200 S/TEM) with EDS (Jeol dual EDS for F200) and EELS (Gatan Continuum), analytical high resolution scanning electron microscope (Zeiss UltraPlus FESEM) with EDS (Oxford Instruments XMaxN) and EBSD (Oxford Instruments Symmetry), focused ion beam microscope (Zeiss Crossbeam 540 FIBSEM) with EDS (Oxford Instruments XMaxN), basic scanning electron microscopes with low vacuum mode and EDSs (Tescan Vega SEM + Bruker EDS, Jeol IT-500 SEM + Jeol EDS), FESEM (Zeiss Ultra 55) with e-beam lithography (Raith), Raman microscope (Renishaw InVia Qontor), micro X-ray fluorescence spectrometer (Bruker M4 Tornado Plus XRF), versatile atomic force microscope (Bruker Icon AFM), and comprehensive sample preparation equipment for electron microscopy samples.
