Home > Press > Imago Delivers Second Atom Probe Microscope to the Montanuniversität Leoben

Abstract:
The Montanuniversität Leoben in Leoben Austria, has acquired a Local Electrode Atom Probe (LEAP®) microscope, the LEAP 3000X HR™, from Imago Scientific Instruments. This instrument, which was shipped in late 2007, is the second Imago atom probe microscope purchased for the Leoben facility. The first Imago atom probe microscope was delivered and installed at the university in 2006.

Imago Delivers Second Atom Probe Microscope to the Montanuniversität Leoben

Madison, WI | Posted on January 24th, 2008

The university's Department of Physical Metallurgy and Materials Testing has established a center of excellence in atom probe tomography utilizing Imago's atom probe product family. Leoben's research focuses on the development of high-performance metal alloy materials. The atom probe microscopes are an enabling technology for correlating the material phase transformations and precipitation processes with thermo-physical and mechanical properties.

"Seeing materials in three dimensions at the atomic scale is critical to nanoscience", outlined Dr. Harald Leitner, principal investigator. "With the LEAP microscopes we can analyze structures down to the atomic scale and produce invaluable three-dimensional compositional information not possible with any other technique. In addition, the new LEAP atom probe microscope offers laser pulsing capability which enables us to apply the instrument to semiconductors and insulators, as well as conductive metal alloy materials."

Dr. Leitner explained, "The capabilities of the LEAP microscope are essential to our goal of designing a state-of-the-art-microscopy facility that will serve the demanding charter of the department. The first LEAP, received in 2006, is in great demand. The addition of a second instrument will both expand our capabilities and increase our capacity - the growing demand for atom probe microscopy at our center now requires a second system."

Dr. Leitner continued, "In our evaluation of instruments, the Imago LEAP atom probe had the largest field of view, combined with a high mass resolution and the overall performance required for trace element analyses at high sensitivity levels. We are very impressed with the knowledge and helpful support of the Imago staff, and are looking forward to working with Imago to develop new applications for this exciting new technology."

"The purchase of a second atom probe microscope from Imago speaks for itself", said Imago Founder and CEO Dr. Tom Kelly. The new LEAP microscope, the LEAP 3000X HR, was announced in August 2007. The "HR" designates that the product offers best in class High (mass) Resolution enabling the analysis of individual atoms to be performed with unprecedented compositional accuracy in voltage-pulse mode. It complements the LEAP 3000 Si™ product family which was introduced in 2006 and targeted at semiconductor and microelectronics applications.
