TEM Cameras

Direct Electron delivers next-generation direct detection cameras for transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Direct electron has transformed the field of electron microscopy, starting with Biological Cryo-EM and now Material Science TEM/STEM.

However, not all direct detectors are created equal. Direct Electron's pioneering and award-winning Direct Detection Device (DDD®) technology uses more sophisticated pixel design than other direct detection cameras, delivering lower noise, better sensitivity, higher speed and expanded versatility. The cameras also deliver full-speed movies to users to enable motion correction, dose filtering, in situ imaging, 4D-STEM data collection, and more.
