The historic FIM100 Atom Probe on Display

The historic Vacuum Generator VG FIM100 atom probe field ion microscope (APFIM) is currently on exhibit at the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago. 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.
