Stabilizing Ultrafast Electron Microscopy Imaging for Custom Optics

Problem The Zewail Group operating a Quanta FEG 650 interfaced with a custom optical set-up to enable ultrafast electron microscopy imaging. Feeding a laser into a SEM chamber requires positional stability within a few micrometers, so SEM internal air isolation was not in use. Vibration levels present in the environment were significant enough to degrade imaging … Continue reading
