We are pleased to announce the Merlin detector is available to test on the newly commissioned ARM300CF microscope at Diamond Light Source. For details of commission calls, please see below.

Dear Colleagues

This is the first call for commissioning at the ARM300CF transmission electron Microscope – E02, one of the newly installed Microscopes at ePSIC (electron Physical Sciences Imaging Center) at Diamond Light Source Ltd.

This instrument, a collaboration between Oxford University and Diamond Light Source Ltd, is offering a reduced amount of time to external Users during this commissioning period.  Time on the microscope will be allocated based on scientific merit and with strong emphasis on the technical feasibility.  For details of the instrument capabilities please refer to ePSIC website.

Time will be available between mid-March and May 2017 and will be offered at the same time as we keep performing more calibration measurements on the instrument.   Users interested should submit their proposals through the User Administration System (UAS). A step by step guide for submission can be found here.

The deadline for this call is 30th January 2017

We are offering two access routes:

  • For Diamond time,  please select Commissioning call, time open for all Institutions
  • For Oxford time, please select Diamond/Oxford  Collaboration , this time is reserved for Oxford Principal Investigators

For this commissioning call it is essential that users can demonstrate the suitability of their samples for high resolution transmission electron microscopy.  Please remember there are no advanced sample preparation capabilities at Diamond.
