Centre for High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy
welcome to the centre for hrtem
The Centre for High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy is a facility for advanced electron microscopy situated at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth. The facility houses four state-of-the-art electron microscopes - including the only double aberration corrected transmission electron microscope on the African continent - as well as the enabling infrastructure for sample preparation, data processing and image simulation. Other instruments include a fully analytical TEM, a focused ion beam scanning electron microscope and an analytical high resolution scanning electron microscope.
The main aim of the Centre for HRTEM is to provide a broad community of South African scientists and students with a full range of state-of-the-art instruments and expertise for materials research.
