DualEELS™: A key advance in electron spectroscopy in the electron microscope

DualEELS™ is a recent advance in Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS) made possible by a successful collaboration between the University of Glasgow and Gatan, Inc., the world leader in electron spectroscopy systems for electron microscopy.

The resulting Gatan GIF QUANTUM® and the ENFINIUM® electron microscope products, incorporating the novel DualEELS™ concept pioneered in Glasgow, have been a commercial success.

The market penetration of the DualEELS™ technique has been very high and it is increasingly regarded as a core requirement for these systems.

These systems are used routinely for R&D, quality control and failure analysis in firms such as AMD, Intel and Samsung, and for development of the advanced materials and devices key to modern society in a wide range of industrial sectors.
