TEM analytics from Carl Zeiss gain software advances

(September 21, 2010 – BUSINESS WIRE) — The LIBRA series of transmission electron microscopes (TEM) from Carl Zeiss will now offer the new ZEMAS framework technology (ZEISS Electron Microscopy Applications Software).

ZEMAS Framework Technology integrates innovative data acquisition, viewing and analysis capabilities into the LIBRA series TEMs. ZEMAS enables scientists to conduct routine and advanced TEM/STEM nano-characterization experiments with an unprecedented ease of use. The pioneering ZEMAS framework technology also enables the fast implementation of future new techniques and applications that result from collaboration between TEM pioneers and Carl Zeiss NTS.

As an early adopter of ZEMAS framework technology from the Central Facility for Electron Microscopy at RWTH Aachen University (Germany), Prof. Joachim Mayer explains: “ZEMAS is a major step forward towards an intuitive user interface, which assists the operator in a broad range of tasks, ranging from fast routine applications to the structured development of new methods for TEM. Combined with the powerful hardware configuration and the optimized electron-optical design of the LIBRA 200, ZEMAS lowers the threshold to acquiring high quality data, and gives us the chance to design and implement experiments that were previously too cumbersome to attempt. We are anxiously looking forward to working with our ZEMAS-equipped LIBRA 200, and instantly recognized its potential in a multi-user environment.”

"In the last decade, R&D in the field of TEM has been largely focused on hardware and instrumentation innovations such as aberration correctors, monochromators, energy filters, detectors, sample holders, and cryo-protection. The aberration corrected LIBRA 200 TEM, the LIBRA 120 PLUS TEM and highly specialized systems like the CRISP, PACEM or SESAM systems from Carl Zeiss are a direct result of these development efforts. For the future of TEM, we see a growing need for development of software applications and workflow innovations. ZEMAS has been developed with a constant vision of ultimate ease of use and rapid implementation of advanced TEM/STEM techniques," said Alexander Lazar, product line manager for TEM at Carl Zeiss.
