Transmission Electron Microscope Image on the new JEOL JEM-2100F

This is an image of a gold crystal taken with the new JEOL JEM 2100F transmission electron microscope. Spacing of the lattice planes in the specially prepared gold crystals is a useful way to test the resolution and image stability of an electron microscope. This is one of the first images taken on our new TEM in Baker Lab at SUNY-ESF.  The spacing in the planes of the crystal is approximately 2Å or 0.2 nm.  An Angstrom (Å) unit is equal to 0.1 nanometer or 10-10 meters.
