AXT now offers TEM cameras from Direct Electron

Scientific equipment supplier AXT has announced the formation of a new relationship with US-based Direct Electron — a producer of next-generation detection cameras for transmission electron microscopes (TEMs). These cameras are used by researchers in both academia and industry working in materials science and life science to image samples down to the atomic level.

Founded in 2007, Direct Electron designs and manufactures ultrahigh-performance cameras for electron microscopists. The cameras utilise Direct Detection Device (DDD) technology that was developed in conjunction with the University of California San Diego.

The cameras offer high resolution, sensitivity and a large field of view, enabling microscopists to collect high-quality data fast and optimise the optical performance of existing TEMs. Furthermore, they allow users to generate 3D reconstructions, providing insights into the structure of their samples.

“We are excited to be working with AXT, who are both well respected and extremely active in the microscopy arena,” said Bob Monteverde, Director of Business Development and Marketing at Direct Electron. “We are certain that our partnership will help to grow our brand in Australia and New Zealand.”

Richard Trett, AXT’s Managing Director, added, “We have an extensive portfolio of microscopy-related products. The addition of Direct Electron’s Direct Detection cameras adds another valuable product that we can offer our existing client-base that fits with our mission to provide cutting-edge solutions to Australian researchers.”
