The Atom Probe Tomography System, known by its commercial name, Leap, is a state-of-the-art 3D atom probe tomography tool that aligns with EMSL’s vision to achieve sub-nanometer 3D chemical imaging by complementing the high-resolution transmission electron microscopes and other surface and interfacial analysis tools available to users. The atom probe tomography instrument will enable the first-ever comprehensive and accurate 3-D chemical imaging studies of low electrical conductivity materials, such as ceramics, semiconductors and oxides. The implications could lead to advances in materials science, ceramics, metallurgy, geochemistry and biomineralization. The instrument will be among the first of its kind available to the global scientific community through a user facility. EMSL is a Department of Energy national scientific user facility located at PNNL.
