October 28, 2013. The new(er) TEM is being delivered at the end of this week. The installation will begin next week Nov 4. We will get the system installed to the point that the vacuum system can be operated. The system will pump during the week of Nov 11. Installation will resume and completed during the week of Nov 18.
We will be moving some pieces of the old TEM including the digital camera and the x-ray analysis electronics to the new(er) TEM. This will leave us without a usable TEM for brief periods.
The takeaway from this is to get your TEM work done this week.
