Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope
The Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope (STEM) facility, operated by BNL's Biology Department, actually includes two microscopes, STEM 1 and STEM 3. Both powerful devices allow scientists to see the intricate details of living organisms, from bacteria to human tissue. STEM users often attach large atoms such as gold to their samples to make imaging easier. STEM is used by more than 50 scientists each year.
