Advantages: 

Transmission electron microscope (TEM) cooling holders are used in applications that require low temperature observation of in-situ phase transitions and to reduce contamination due to carbon migration.

  • Reduce unwanted thermal effects in various analytical techniques and facilitates energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) analysis by reducing contamination and mass loss
  • When configured for EDS applications, holder tip is designed to provide a clear path between sample and detector to reduce shadowing for EDS analysis
