No single camera or camera configuration covers every restriction imposed by the TEM or by the user. Life and Material Sciences applications can require similar camera imaging configurations, but must be located in differing positions on the TEM . Therefore, AMT has created numerous options to fit user applications, TEM configurations, and price considerations.

AMT provides the highest performance optics with specially designed finite-conjugate lenses for all our products. We are proud to have pioneered the use of high resolution RESTM phosphors, which minimize electron scattering effects and provide superior sensitivity. AMT offers a complete line of digital imaging capabilities from 1 megapixel to 16 megapixel format. All systems provide sharp images with high dynamic range and low noise.

Optimum microscope/camera configurations are defined not only by application, but by the best suited position on the microscope for a specific application. These positions include:

  • Side-Mount/35mm position

  • Mid-Mount position

  • Low-Mount position

AMT Cameras and their Positions in the TEM

As seen above, cameras can be grouped into specific areas of the microscope based on user preference and application. AMT cameras can also be selected by the physical nature of chip size/pixel density. Assessment of specific cameras by model provides the user with the ability to select the best camera over a wide range of budgetary and application requirements. In addition, AMT has a selection of lenses engineered to optimize camera sensor performance, regardless of camera location or application. Whether working in broad application Biology, Pathology, or Material sciences or in fields of Advanced Nanotechnology, AMT offers cameras with the speed, sensitivity, and dynamic range to meet your needs. These include:

AMT provides sophisticated software capability, yet maintains operational simplicity by using a modular architecture that intelligently segments acquisition from analysis.

Based on user/menu selected TEM conditions and annotations, AMT's CCD camera systems provide a comprehensive operating software package for seamless digital image acquisition, processing, and storage of images.

Whether one is using Live Image Survey or viewing the image post-acquisition, the desktop environment (RIGHT) features the prominent display of the user's specimen image. In addition, the modular arrangement creates three work areas: 1) Camera Control on the right; 2) Access on the left to user specific analysis and imaging software, diffraction ring and spot pattern measurements, live measurements, text annotations, zoom image, and saving images; and 3) pull down menu tabs across the top for less frequently used applications and features.
