Congratulations to our esteemed colleague Dr. Hideyuki Takahashi at JEOL Ltd. for winning the 2021 'Presidential Science Award' from the Microanalysis Society (MAS) for his long-term contribution to the field of microbeam analysis. He has been engaged in R&D and application development of electron probe microanalyzer and soft X-ray emission spectrometer since he joined JEOL.
We would like to thank Takahashi-san for all his hard work and dedication.
Data from a JEOL 300kV TEM, JEM-ARM300F, and a new laser system by IDES, Inc. will be presented by the research team of AIST and Osaka University at M&M 2021.
The research group of Dr. Ryousuke Senga, Electron Microscopy Group, Nanomaterials Research Institute, Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) and Professor Kazutomo Suenaga, Department of Nanocharacterization for Nanostructures and Functions, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Center, The Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research (ISIR: SANKEN), Osaka University, succeeded in recording atomic-resolution in-situ movies of growing carbon nanotubes and onion-shaped carbon nano structures in a transmission electron microscope (TEM). The structures were formed by laser irradiation of samples made of carbon films and iron nanoparticles.
This experiment was conducted using a JEOL 300kV Transmission Electron Microscope with a cold field emission gun, JEM-ARM300F, and a new system designed by JEOL subsidiary Integrated Dynamic Electron Solutions, Inc. for precisely focusing lasers onto TEM samples, Luminary Micro. This combination of high-performance imaging instrumentation and reduced sample motion due to precision-controlled rapid localized illumination enables extraordinary spatial resolution for in-situ experiments.
The details of this research will be presented by Dr. Senga during the Microscopy and Microanalysis (M&M) 2021 Conference, held in the U. S. from 1st - 5th August 2021.

JEOL UK is proud to announce that the Scottish Cryo-EM consortium has chosen the JEOL JEM-Z300FSC CRYO ARM™ 300 as their preferred automated Cryo Transmission Electron Microscope (Cryo-TEM) for the Scottish Centre for Macromolecular Imaging (SCMI).
The SCMI consortium led by the MRC Centre for Virus Research (CVR) at The University of Glasgow, selected JEOL after a thorough evaluation of the competing technologies for cryo-TEM. The JEOL CRYO ARM™ 300 will be supported by a second TEM, the JEOL 200kV JEM-F200 “F2” Cryo-TEM.
Project lead and programme leader in the CVR, Dr David Bhella said:
“The mission of the CVR is to carry out fundamental research on viruses and viral diseases, translating the knowledge gained for the improvement of health and benefit of society.
Cryogenic transmission electron microscopy is revolutionising the field of structural biology. The SCMI represents a tremendous opportunity not only for the CVR, but also for Life Scientists throughout Scotland. The new facility will place Glasgow at the centre of vital structural biology research by offering world-class capability. The new technology will help us investigate key processes in cancer biology and infection”.
Cryo-EM has gained enormous momentum in recent years resulting in the award for the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
Ultra-high resolution structural analysis of viruses and proteins derived from cryo-EM techniques such as Single Particle Analysis (SPA) require high stability hardware and software.
The JEOL CRYO ARM™ 300 is the latest offering in cryo-TEM, able to achieve unprecedented resolution and stability by including Cold Field Emission Gun; in-column Omega energy filter; Hole-Free Phase Plate; side-entry liquid nitrogen cooling stage and an automated 12 specimen storage and exchange system.
The JEM-F200 "F2” is a high throughput TEM and the only 200kV system in its class to offer a Cold Field Emission Gun. The 'F2' employs the latest JEOL innovations in an easy-to-use, extremely stable, high resolution imaging 200kV TEM with STEM. This makes it the ideal partner for any high-level cryo-TEM.
JEOL look forward to helping and supporting Dr David Bhella and colleagues in the SCMI consortium in their research activities using the new instruments.
