New (cryo-)FIB monster at nanoGUNE

new opportunities and research prospectives

In November 2021, nanoGUNE was awarded by the Ministry of Science and Technology of the Spanish Government a project grant for the acquisition of a new FIB. The equipment will be a state-of-the-art focused ion beam electron microscope, which will combine features that are not normally present together in a single instrument: an extensive set of detectors for materials science applications; Xe plasma ion source for high speed milling targeting for batteries sector and industry; TOF SIMS for isotope resolved elemental analysis; and a cryogenic setup, typically dedicated to biological applications. This combination of features in a single instrument will be unique in Europe and will provide new research opportunities in the energy sector, in materials science related to low-temperature physics, and in biological sciences related to cryo-cell electron tomography.

In this seminar presentation, we will describe the technologies behind this new equipment and outline the new research lines (e.g. virus-cell infection structural studies lead by the Abrescia Lab at CIC bioGUNE). 

In conclusion, the new (cryo)-FIB will promote new interactions for the nanoGUNE scientists, and for the Basque and the Spanish research communities.
