  • Time resolution:
    Relativity performs transitions between subframe regions in less than 100 ns.

  • Continuous kHz-scale video:
    Relativity can sustain subframe rates up to 100 kHz.

  • Custom applications:
    Integrate Relativity with an in situ holder, laser, IDES Electrostatic Dose Modulator, or other accessories.

  • Simple field installation:
    Relativity’s electrostatic optics are installed through an accessory port.

  • Out of sight, out of mind:
    Optics pneumatically retract out of the beam when they are not in use.

  • Acuity Edge analysis server:
    Automated data processing with segmentation and alignment of subframes helps you get the most out of your data.

  • Advanced control software:
    Seamlessly move between measurement programs with our intuitive interface, or use our powerful tools to design something new.

How dose Relativity work?

Relatvity installs an electrostatic optics assembly in a wide-angle camera port. These optics rapidly deflect the image data to different regions (or subframes) of the camera in a programmable sequence. Each camera readout contains a tiled array of crisp, blur-free subframes. Raw data is automatically analyzed to give a stack of images.

Applicable models: JEM-ARM300F/300F2, JEM-ARM200F, NEOARM, JEM-F200, JEM-2100Plus, JEM-2100F

  • Select one of these configurations to order. Custom configurations can be made available on request.

  • In the JEM-2100Plus, Relativity deflector module is installed in the left-side dark field STEM detector port.

  • The subframe size for SD configuration is limited by the spacing between deflector electrodes (the ‘deflector gap’). Detailed information is available in the specification sheet of Relativity.

  • The subframe size for IF configuration is limited by a circular aperture installed on the top of Relativity deflector module. The subframe sizes are also affected by imaging conditions.

  • Due to geometrical constraints, different subframe array layouts are optimal for different detector sizes. Gatan OneView camera is chosen for illustrative purposes. Relativity system is compatible with nearly all commercially-available cameras.
