GRAND ARM Transmission Electron Microscope - JEOL Center for Nanoscale Solutions at California Irvine Materials Research Institute (IMRI)
Renowned Materials Scientists to Present at the 1st International Symposium on Advanced Microscopy and Spectroscopy (ISAMS)
April 18, 2018 – Peabody, Mass. ---- World-renowned electron microscopists will join Dr. Xiaoqing Pan, Director of the University of California Irvine Materials Research Institute (IMRI), for the Grand Opening of the JEOL Center for Nanoscale Solutions and a three-day symposium June 6-8, 2018.
The JEOL Center for Nanoscale Solutions at IRMI is poised to become one of the world’s preeminent centers of excellence for interdisciplinary research, discovery and development of engineered and natural materials, systems and devices. IMRI is home to several of the highest performance TEMs available in the world today. It is also the first US installation of the JEOL GRAND ARM Transmission Electron Microscope developed for advanced atomic resolution characterization, In addition, the facility also houses the JEM-2800 high throughput, nano-analysis TEM/STEM, and the JEM-2100F cryogenic and atomic level structural analysis TEM.
The Grand Opening will showcase the accomplishments to date at this premier Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) facility, now open to serve all university, industry and nonprofit researchers. Invited speakers will include leading edge researchers in electron microscopy who are known worldwide for their achievements in materials and biological sciences.
The interdisciplinary nexus for the study and development of new materials, IMRI operates a wide range of state-of-the-art, open-access user facilities for the characterization of materials, biological samples and devices from sub-Å to macroscopic length scales - available to all university, industry and non-profit researchers. It offers advanced techniques and services with professional staff support.

Dr. Pan, an internationally-recognized researcher in the physics of materials, joined the UC Irvine faculty in 2015 to lead the $20 million initiative. According to Dr. Pan, “The three-day symposium will bring together the scientific community working on various aspects of research and development in TEM to encourage the exchange of ideas for the advancement and challenges in atomic scale imaging and spectroscopy. There will be over 50 internationally renowned TEM experts and scientists participating in this event.”
In his work Pan has pioneered the development and applications of advanced TEM techniques and the discovery of novel phenomena and properties of engineered materials, which range from ferroelectrics and multiferroics to nanocatalysts and energy materials.
“The JEOL Center for Nanoscale Solutions will be the most advanced electron microscopy cluster available for probing the atomic structure and properties of materials," says JEOL USA President Peter Genovese.
