Lift-Out !

One of my projects decided it needed TEM data, so I am learning the new techniques and I'm pretty excited.



Used the Helios NanoSEM to remove the area of interest and mount it to a TEM grid

Then the sample and I bopped on over to the TEM lab to use the Titan! This machine is much more formidable than any I've worked on before. I'm infatuated now though.

The data was really interesting, if not at all what we were expecting to see... On the left is a brightfield image showing differences in crystallographic orientation. On the right is a diffraction pattern.
