See the historic VG FIM100 Atom Probe at the Field Museum

NUCAPT's historic Vacuum Generator VG FIM100 atom probe field ion microscope (APFIM) is exhibited at the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago, since April 2021. Prominently featured is the Poschenrieder lens with the slightly angled flight tube at the left top that bestowed this instrument with excellent mass resolution. We will provide more information how to best pay a visit as we gather details.
