K3 IS Cameras

K3™ IS – The world’s first counting, high-speed, large format cameras for in-situ microscopy. Extending K3’s resolution revolution to material science, you can now count single electrons with unprecedented temporal resolution to produce the highest signal-to-noise in-situ results available. K3 IS cameras not only enable low-dose imaging capabilities but redefine how you can resolve undiscovered details during in-situ environmental reactions and beam sensitive material studies.

  • Highest Image Quality
    • Superior DQE is required for the most-demanding low-dose and in-situ applications
    • See your sample, not beam artifacts with counted, low-dose images
  • Unsurpassed Resolution & Field of View
    • Count 1500 full fps – 3.7x the frame rate of K2
      • K3 IS model (1027) – 24 megapixels (5,760 x 4,092)
      • K3 Base IS model (1026) – 14 megapixels (3,456 x 4,092)
    • Store 150 fps at full sensor resolution, and >3500 fps with sub-area
  • Shortest Time to Results
    • Ensure you collect the best data possible by quickly previewing results at the microscope
    • Minimize time to results with well-established GMS in-situ analysis utilities, including free offline tools

Insist on the highest performance and discover how the K3 IS cameras extend Gatan’s tradition of enabling new science for materials and in-situ imaging – year after year.

Application Note

K3 IS: Low dose EM meets catalysis


Continuing our prosperous collaborations that built the K2, the K3 is the successful result of Peter Denes' team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and David Agard.
