TEAM Stage Recognized in 2009 R&D 100 Awards

A novel nano-positioning stage for electron microscopy, co-invented by FSMRL staff members Eric Olson and Todor Donchev, and FSMRL Central Facilities Director Ivan Petrov, has been awarded a 2009 R&D 100 Award by R&D Magazine. The R&D 100 Awards are selected annually to recognize the most

technologically significant new products or processes. The stage is used to hold and position samples inside electron microscopes with unprecedented stability, position-control accuracy, and range of motion. The invention is a collaboration between physicists, engineers, and designers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Attocube Systems, and the FEI Company as part of the DOE-funded Transmission Electron Aberration-corrected Microscope (TEAM) project.
