The electron microscope center of Zhejiang university was officially established in the 2012 with a total investment of 45 million. Since its establishment, as a large-scale service sharing platform, the Center has served for all the departments of school as well as the enterprises and institutions in the society.At present, the Centre is in possession of large-scale instruments and equipments as follows:Spherical aberration electron microscope TITAN ChemiSTEM, environmental transmission electron microscope H-9 500,field emission transmission electron microscope TECNAI G2 F 20,focusable beam micro nano machining instrument Quanta 3D FEG, field emission scanning electron microscope SU- 70,Tungsten filament scanning electron microscope S-3700N, field emission scanning electron microscope (SIRION-100) and X ray diffractometer (X ray diffractometer) XPERT PRO, among which, field emission transmission electron microscope F20,field emission scanning electron microscope SU- 70, and X- ray diffractometer X’Pert PRO are operating in full load. The uptime of external service of each of the three instruments is about 1, 500 hours and serve more than 1, 000 people each year.The uptime of other electron microscope equipment each year is also more than 400-800 hours.According to incomplete statistics, there are more than 500 SCI papers published every year using the data provided by the instruments of our center, which won many competitions, such as the microstructure of electron microscope and so on.
