IIT-Madras introduces world's first remotely operable LEAP microscope: details, features, benefits, significance

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-Madras has commissioned remotely operable Local Electrode Atom Probe (LEAP) microscope which is claimed to be the world’s first remotely operable LEAP microscope.

The LEAP microscope can be remotely operated through the special terminal by researchers divided geographically.

The LEAP is a high-performance microscope that can provide a precise atom-by-atom view of materials. It provides atomic-scale insights into metallic, which will influence a wide spectrum of industries ranging from steel to automobiles and energy to the transportation sector.

The LEAP microscope will also give a major thrust to research in nanotechnology, among other fields

The remotely operable LEAP microscope has been developed in a collaborative exercise involving eight top research institutions in the country, spearheaded by IIT-Madras.

Other partner institutions are IITs of Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur and Ropar, International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials (ARCI) and Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS).
