Titan™ Transmission Electron Microscope

Since its introduction in 2005, the Titan's superior product design and proven ability to deliver ground-breaking results have made it the preferred scanning/transmission electron microscope (S/TEM) of leading researchers around the world. The FEI Titan™ S/TEM family includes the world's most powerful, commercially-available S/TEMs: the Titan™ G2 60-300, Titan3™ G2 60-300, Titan Krios™ and Titan™ ETEM (environmental TEM). Built around a revolutionary 60-300 kV electron column, all Titans enable sub-Angstrom, atomic scale discovery and exploration in both TEM and STEM modes over a wide range of materials and operating conditions.

The Titan is the first and only S/TEM designed to fully realize the benefits of corrected S/TEM. Aberration correction breaks through the fundamental optical limitations of magnetic lenses, but requires equally fundamental changes in system design to achieve the stability required for ultra high resolution imaging and analysis. The Titan's extra wide column was specifically designed to give the mechanical stability required due to the added height of probe and image correctors. Its proprietary constant power lenses and advanced power supplies provide the necessary thermal and electronic stability.

Titan G2 60-300 TEM

TThe Titan 60-300™ microscope incorporates a newly designed platform dedicated to the principles of ultimate stability, ultimate performance and ultimate flexibility for corrector and monochromator technology and its applications. The microscope transfers information deep into sub-Ångström resolution making way for the highest performance available in both TEM and STEM.

Titan ETEM

The Titan™ ETEM is the ultimate in situ high resolution electron microscope to study dynamic behaviour of chemical reactions under the influence of variable temperatures and gas pressures at the atomic level. With innovative E-cell technology in the objective lens pole piece allows in situ S/TEM gas experiments with a mixture of up to four gas inlets with preset partial pressure up to 2 kPa (20 mbar, 15 torr). This unique capability can be combined with the image Cs corrector and monochromator technology of FEI to explore the dynamic behavior of the morphology, structure, composition and bonding of nanomaterials down to the atomic level.

Titan3 G2 60-300 TEM

The Titan3 includes a newly designed base to provide ultra stable support for a column with both image and probe correctors and a monochromator. An environmental enclosure effectively isolates the column from external interferences and at the same time relaxes facility requirements and infrastructure costs. High speed remote control removes even the operator from the instrument environment, a change that will be welcomed by most operators. A larger pole piece gap, permitted by the corrected optics, brings new flexibility to high resolution TEM applications such as tomography, cryo TEM, environmental TEM and dynamic experiments. Field upgrades that permit the addition of correctors or a monochromator to an existing column provide budgetary flexibility as well.

Titan Krios TEM

The Titan Krios is the tool for obtaining fast, fully automated, high content three dimensional information about biological cells down to the scale resolving individual molecular complexes. It perfectly complements the cellular scale observations available from light microscopy and the atomic scale analysis provided by NMR and X-Ray diffraction. Advanced automation makes analysis fast and easy, increasing experimental productivity and enabling the high-volume analysis needed for complex biological systems.
