Funded by the European Union
Thermo Fisher Scientific (TFS) is participating to the project with the Materials and Structural Analysis Division (MSD). The MSD division develops, manufactures and markets the broadest range of high-performance microscopy and spectroscopy workflows that provide answers in the micro-, nano-, and picometer scales. TFS (previously FEI) has a long history in developing and marketing Transmission Electron Microscopes. Over the last decade special attention has been given to specific workflows focused on certain applications of electron diffraction. With the development of novel phase sensitive and analytical Electron Microscopy techniques and including novel detectors TFS will contribute to the NanED project.
TFS owns a large R&D facility in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, where about 300 scientists and engineers are working. The R&D and application development groups have good access to all necessary equipment (TEM’s, SEM’s and SEM/FIB equipment). The site in Eindhoven also hosts a TEM factory, the service training centre, the Life Science Business Unit and the European Nanoport with demonstration and application equipment for all European customers.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska Curie grant agreement No 956099.
