First published Thursday, September 1, 2016
The University awarded a contract for Quantum GIF (Gatan Imaging Filter) Spectrometer .
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which items available on the spot market or at discounted prices were available for a limited time such that sound business judgment mandated a purchase immediately to take advantage of the availability and price.
This Gatan Model 965 Spectrometer is available only on a limited basis until September 2, 2016 at a discounted 7.8% price.

Gatan?s Quantum Model 965 is the only manufacturer of this electron energy-loss spectrometers in the world and, therefore, the only supplier of this equipment that will fit onto the existing JEOL ARM200CF microscope. JEOL does not sell nor distribute this Gatan U.S. patented spectrometer. There are over 50 installs world-wide.

The Physics Researcher require a Quantum GIF (Gatan Imaging Filter) Model 965 Spectrometer from Gatan, Inc. for ongoing federal research. This spectrometer will be placed on the JEOL ARM200CF electron microscope that was purchased in 2011. This GIF is necessary for performing the proposed research. The research has progressed to a critical stage and the utilization of the GIF to advance the research is crucial.

Together, the Gatan Model 965 and the JEOL ARM200CF will provide an energy resolution (FWHM) of 100 meV, a primary energy range between 60 and 200 keV, a field fo view of 2 keV and 100% collection efficiency. The shutter speed will be 1 us with an acquisition speed of more than 1000 spectra per second.The spectrometer will offer dual EELS capabilities, a high-speed camera for readign out 2-dim images and high energy acquisition/mapping of spectra.
