University of Pannonia

University of Pannonia

Situated in picturesque towns within the former Roman province of Pannonia, the University of Pannonia is headquartered in Veszprém, the capital of Bakony Hill. Renowned for its exceptional academic achievements and the delivery of high-caliber, marketable knowledge, our institution stands out as one of the country’s leaders in research and development output per lecturer.


Nanolab is the electron microscopy laboratory of the University of Pannonia (UP). We study the structures, compositions, and morphologies of solid materials, from atomic resolution to the micrometer scale, using a wide variety of electron microscopy techniques. Nanolab staff are members of the Environmental Mineralogy Research Group.
In addition to pursuing our own research projects, our facility provides service to both internal (UP) and external users.

Equipment Nanolab


Electron Microscopy:

Talos F200X (STEM):
200 kV (S)TEM. High-brightness X-FEG electron gun, high-resolution imaging, electron diffraction, electron tomography, and high-sensitivity 2D EDX chemical mapping (Super-X).


Chemical and structural analysis of Earth materials:
The Talos can be operated in conventional transmission (TEM) and scanning transmission (STEM) modes. Imaging, diffraction, and elemental analysis can be performed simultaneously, providing complex structural and compositional information about almost any solid material, down to atomic resolution. Our special expertise includes the study of electron beam-sensitive materials and the tomographic analysis of 3D morphologies and compositions on the nm scale.

Processing and data acquisition software

TEM data processing is performed using Velox, Inspect 3D and Avizo software, plus crystallography software (CrystalMaker, CrystalDiffract, SingleCrystal) is available.

Sample preparation

For efficiency and time management, we prefer that TNA users bring their specimens ready for TEM. Nevertheless, we can do basic TEM sample preparation in Nanolab: grid samples, ultramicrotomy, carbon coating of specimens. FIB milling may be arranged elsewhere, subject to availability and timing.
