Feb. 1, 2007 — Imago Scientific Instruments, a Madison, WI microscopy company, announced the shipment and installation of four of its LEAP® microscope systems, including the initial installations of Imago’s new 3000X Si system. The company reports that its LEAP microscopy provides high-sensitivity, quantitative 3D compositional imaging and analysis with atomic resolution, offering insights into how a material’s atomic structure affects its mechanical and electrical properties.
Imago installed the four systems into research facilities at University of Leoben (Austria), Iowa State University (USA), and Oxford University (UK, two systems). Each system was installed and became fully operational in less than two weeks.
In addition to metals research, the four newly installed systems will analyze a broad array of materials including semiconductors, electro-optic materials, and organic molecules.
