State-of-the-art electron microscope promises to aid major research advances
Date:3/9/2009

TEMPE, Ariz. Arizona State University will be home to one of the world's most advanced electron microscopes, one that will enable researchers to do work essential to making significant advances in nanoscale aspects of solid state science and materials science and engineering.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Materials Research has approved a grant to fund ASU's $5 million project to acquire an aberration-corrected transmission electron microscope that allows for the clearest possible views yet of matter at the atomic level.

The capabilities of this type of microscope will bolster ASU's stature as one of the top university microscopy research and teaching facilities in the nation. It is the first time the NSF is supporting acquisition of an electron microscope of this kind by a university facility.

"This is a technologically revolutionary instrument that is opening up whole new areas of materials and biological research," said Nathan Newman, a professor in ASU's School of Materials and director of the university's LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid State Science.

"It is an invaluable tool for the future success of nanoscience and nanotechnology, which are fields critical to both national security and economic development," Newman said.

The microscope will be located in the J.M. Cowley Center for High Resolution Electron Microscopy in the Eyring Center, which is part of the School of Materials. The school is jointly administered by the Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering and the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.

Electron microscopy in the Cowley Center currently supports more than $6 million annually in research expenditures from sources outside ASU. The advanced nanoscale research that the new microscope can provide is likely to mean a significant increase in revenue that can be generated for ASU from new research grants and fees paid for use of the microscope by researchers from industry an
