More Data, Less Prep

Make the most of your microscope time by maximizing data collection and minimizing preparation work. From its self-aligning holder tip design to its intuitive software controls, Atmosphere was designed with your time in mind.

TEM gas cell

Create Without Limits

The custom gas handling manifold accurately measures, mixes, and flows just about anything to accommodate a wide range of experimental conditions. Compatible gases range from simple, single-component gases to complex, pre-mixed gases to unique, custom generated reactor exhaust streams to vapors like water, methanol, and naphtha.

TEM Environmental analytical data

Analytical Power

Capturing analytical data from EDS, EELS, and mass spectrometry adds an additional layer of knowledge that is impossible to discern from images alone. With E-chip configurations optimized for EDS and a residual gas analyzer that has been fully integrated for optimal performance, you are closer than ever before to nanoscale operando experiments.
