Some accidents sometimes occurred on the vacuum systems of JEMs. We must resolve them as soon as possible. A backstreaming accident occurred on a customer’s EM was, indeed, a most severe one for us, the vacuum engineers of JEOL. In that case the lead-glass window of the viewing chamber got gloomy after EM-film magazine was exchanged.
Accidents and information on the vacuum systems of the JEMs always instructed us how to improve the vacuum systems of JEMs.
