2018 | ANNUAL REPORT 17 Looking Forward Several new instruments are in the procurement and installation process and will come online in FY-19. • Local Electrode Atom Probe (LEAP): This new piece of equipment will allow atomic-scale three-dimen- sional reconstructions and an X-ray computed tomography microscope that will provide three-dimensional images over a wide range of sample sizes and magnifications. • A Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS) will measure the fundamental electronical, and thermal properties of actinide alloys and compounds that provide a more basic understanding of the perfor- mance of these materials. • IMCL’s existingTEM is in the process of being upgraded with an Electron Energy Loss Spectrometer (EELS) and a probe corrector, which will provide information on the chemical state of elements, allow light ele- ment analysis and increase resolu- tion to 0.08 nm. While most of the floor space in IMCL is filled with scientific instruments, space is being left open for the future. “We want to allow the NSUF commu- nity to decide what they want to do with that space,” Meyer said.
