  • ​​​​​​KAUST and FEI, a company that designs, manufactures and supports a broad range of high-performance microscopy workflow solutions, have established a new Center of Excellence in Electron Microscopy located at KAUST. This center of excellence is the first implementation of a strategy by KAUST to build long-term partnerships with major instrument suppliers and will serve as a model for future opportunities to provide state-of-the-art research facilities, training and services to KAUST users and collaborators across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    The opening ceremony will be held on May 9, 2017 and will include the introduction of the Titan Themis Z, the most advanced analytical transmission electron microscope available to date, and the first to be installed in the world.
