The side-mounted Gatan Orius SC200D camera is a cooled CCD and lens-coupled to the robust scintillator. This special design allows this digital CCD camera to be used to record TEM images as well as diffraction patterns, including selected area electron diffraction (SAED), CBED and spot patterns, without “blooming”, streaking or CCD damage. However, the SC200D camera is not a high resolution camera for TEM imaging.
