FEI Company Breaks the 1 Angstrom High Resolution Imaging Barrier

Abstract:
FEI Company announced today that scientists at the company's nanotechnology center have broken the one Angstrom image resolution barrier with a 200kV transmission electron microscope (TEM). FEI believes that this is the first time images can be directly viewed with a resolution of less than one Angstrom using commercially available technologies. One Angstrom is one-tenth of a nanometer in size, and a nanometer is one billionth of a meter. One Angstrom is also approximately one-third the size of a carbon atom and is a key dimension for atomic level research.
