National Center for Electron Microscopy

Ulrich Dahmen, Director

The National Center for Electron Microscopy (NCEM) is one of the world's foremost centers for electron microscopy and microcharacterization. NCEM features several unique instruments, complemented by strong expertise in computer image simulation and analysis. NCEM also maintains one-of-a-kind instruments for imaging of magnetic materials, and develops techniques and instrumentation for dynamic in-situ experimentation.

Established in 1983 as a US Department of Energy User Facility, NCEM has hosted hundreds of visiting US and international scientists. Interested researchers are encouraged to take advantage of NCEM's powerful capabilities by submitting a formal proposal. Visiting researchers and center facilities are supported by resident scientific and technical staff who themselves are well-know experts in their fields. In addition to providing valuable guidance to visiting researchers, NCEM's staff scientists conduct their own specialized research
