World's Most Advanced Microscope Unveiled
The electron microscope is a very precise instrument that uses a beam of electrons to examine objects on a fine scale. Some electron microscopes can magnify specimens as much as 2 million times. McMaster University has unveiled the world’s most advanced microscope that is capable of even finer resolution.
The new electron microscope was built in the Netherlands by the FEI Company and cost in the area of $15 million. The microscope was installed at the Canadian Centre for Electron Microscopy at McMaster University.
