The Merlin for EM high speed detector is installed on the GrandARM at Diamond ePSIC, where it welcomed its very first external users last week.

The GrandARM could be operated at very high resolutions – around 43 picometers – and at frame rates of up to 1,200 frames per second in 12-bit mode (even faster in lower bit modes!).
The first users were from The National Graphene Institute at The University of Manchester.
Users of ePSIC will apply for access to the electron microscope in the same way they would for any beamline at Diamond, through a well-established peer review process, or by performing proprietary research available through Diamond’s Industrial Liaison Office.
