Cathodoluminescence imaging on quartz in sandstone

An inside look at the department of Imaging Physics, TU Delft: The breeding ground for innovations in iCLEM

Understanding the relationship between structure and function in biology requires continuous developments in the field of microscopy. While electron microscopes and fluorescence microscopes have been go-to techniques for studying organic samples at a high resolution, individually they fall short in offering the exhaustive data needed for truly in-depth life science research.

In 2011, the Charged Particle Optics group at TU Delft completed the development of the SECOM. This system integrates a light and electron microscope, thus combining the labelling capabilities of fluorescence microscopy with the high-resolution nanoscale data obtained from electron microscopy. Six years later, the department of Imaging Physics houses no less than five SECOM systems.
