Imperial College London unveils an FEI Titan

Oct. 19, 2006 — Imperial College London announced it has installed an FEI Titan 80-300 S/TEM.

The UK’s first Titan will allow the London Center for Nanotechnology (LCN) — an interdisciplinary collaboration between Imperial College London and University College London (UCL) — to provide a world-class nano-characterization facility for the first time. LCN can now offer scientists the opportunity to view and analyze material at a resolution smaller than half a nanometer.

The Titan is intended to support a range of nanotechnology research projects in medical, pharmaceutical and materials science. These include understanding the processes which influence degenerative brain diseases, developing lightweight aircraft materials to reduce fuel consumption and researching quantum dots as a way to increase the communication bandwidth available from fiber-optic cables.

The microscope was funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council following a joint submission from Imperial College, University College London and the London Center for Nanotechnology.
