Visionaries invited

We cordially invite you to dive into the fascinating world of electron microscopy to join us in a major joint effort: the purchase of two microscopes of the latest generation.

TU Wien Foundation is committed to ensuring excellent research. The main research instrument here is the transmission electron microscope. An instrument for many disciplines.

With your Help, new technical Milestones can be realised

A look at the miniscule elements gives important insight into very big things and also correlates with the motto of the TU Wien Foundation: “Science for a better world.” The aim is to be equipped with optimal scientific infrastructure for future technical and societal challenges.

Scientific recognition via ground-breaking research enables a dominant position to be taken, thereby strengthening Austria as a research location and increasing the competitiveness of TU Wien.

Your Donation

Supporting outstanding researchers in their projects and thus giving society access to solutions that might not have developed in traditional research structures – no less is the goal of the TU Wien Foundation.

Mag. Elfriede Baumann
Chairman of the Foundation Council
At the University Service Facility for Transmission Electron Microscopy scientists are developing solutions for today and tomorrow. Donate for research in the international top league.

An Overview

Accomplishments of USTEM

Co-Operations with Companies in the form of contract research and the provision of scientific services
Scientific Co-Operations: CERN, Ecole Central Paris, ETH Zurich, University of Innsbruck, Fraunhofer Institute Berlin,
Technical University of Delft, University of Regensburg, CEITEC, Technical University of Brno, McMaster University Hamilton (Canada), University of Bielefeld, EPFL Lausanne, and many more.
Graduates: Since the founding of USTEM, about 400 students have been trained in the use of the scanning electron microscope, and about 600 students have been trained in the handling of a transmission electron microscope.
Publications in high-impact journals such as Nature, Nature Communications, Nature Electronics or Physical Review Letters lay testimony to our pioneering role and the importance of electron microscopy in the current research landscape.
