Microscopy & Microanalysis 2020 Meeting

Results matter when you’re pushing the boundaries of what can be done with electron microscopy. Visit the Gatan virtual booth to learn how we can take the most powerful microscopy on earth and make it work even harder for you.


Reserve time to experience how our best-in-class detectors are setting new benchmarks for materials research.

High-Speed EELS/EDS
A new experimental paradigm for EELS and EFTEM that enables you to capture dynamic behaviors and make critical decisions AFTER data is collected.
High-speed compositional and chemical analysis using Gatan Microscopy Suite (GMS) 3.
STEMx DPC Monarc
Now produce differential phase contrast (DPC) maps using the STEMx applications suite for 4D STEM. Empowers the most complete cathodoluminescence analysis to date with unique wavelength- and angle-resolved capabilities.



Discover how Gatan products can deliver new approaches to advance your research. We invite you to attend our exhibitor spotlight, vendor tutorials, and technical sessions. Please check the final scientific program for any changes.
