Transmission Electron Aberration-corrected Microscope

Transmission Electron Aberration-corrected Microscope or TEAM is a $100 million U.S. Department of Energy research project being conducted at five US laboratories.

The intention of the project is to develop a transmission electron microscope capable of 0.05 nanometres (0.5 x 10−10m) resolution, about half the size of a hydrogen atom. As electron microscope lenses normally produce a significant amount of aberration, a complex system of lenses to correct the aberrated images is required.

The first TEAM microscope will be based at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, California and is intended to become operational around 2007/2008. The other laboratories involved are

Argonne National Laboratory
Brookhaven National Laboratory
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Frederick Seitz Materials Research Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
