Transmission Electron Aberration-corrected Microscope or TEAM is a $100 million U.S. Department of Energy research project being conducted at five US laboratories. The United States Department of Energy ( DOE) is a Cabinet -level department of the United States government responsible for energy policy
The intention of the project is to develop a transmission electron microscope capable of 0. 05 nanometres (0. The metre or meter is a unit of Length. It is the basic unit of Length in the Metric system and in the International 5 x 10−10m) resolution, about half the size of a hydrogen atom. Hydrogen (ˈhaɪdrədʒən is the Chemical element with Atomic number 1 History See also Atomic theory, Atomism The concept that matter is composed of discrete units and cannot be divided into arbitrarily tiny As electron microscope lenses normally produce a significant amount of aberration, a complex system of lenses to correct the aberrated images is required.
The first TEAM microscope will be based at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, California and is intended to become operational around 2007/2008. The Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory ( LBNL) is a U Berkeley is a city on the east shore of San Francisco Bay in Northern California, in the United States. The other laboratories involved are
