Most powerful group of microscopes in the world

Abstract:
Seven new super-microscopes and a specially designed building will give scientists at DTU unique opportunities to design new materials. Among the areas that will benefit are the environment, manufacturing, energy and transport.

The most powerful group of microscopes in the world was inaugurated friday by ship-owner Mr Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller. DTU's Centre for Electron Nanoscopy (DTU CEN) owes its creation to a large donation from the A.P. Møller and Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller Foundation for General Purposes.

‘It is unique to be able both to build an ambitious centre and to equip it with the absolute best in electron microscopy technology at the same time. This raises Danish experimental facilities for research into materials and nanotechnology to world class. It will have a major influence on nanoscience all over the world,' says Lars Pallesen, Rector of DTU. One of the total of seven new microscopes is the almost four-metre-high ‘Environmental Transmission Electron Microscope,' developed in association with DTU by world-leading microscope manufacturer FEI Company. It is the most powerful of its type in the world.
