TEM Shielded Rooms

Global EMC’s TEM Shielded Room is a shielded room or laboratory designed specifically to shield sensitive TEM microscopes from 50Hz AC and Quasi-DC interference. Through passive shielding and an active cancellation system, a magnetically shielded room is created to ensure the microscope can work to its greatest potential.


Global EMC is the industry expert in providing room shielding for TEM Microscopes using our specially developed Iron+ ® shielding.

Power frequency and Quasi-DC Interference

Each TEM microscope manufacturer will define the level of quietness required for optimum microscope operation. Typical maximum values are 100nT p-p (1mG p-p) down to 10nT p-p (0.1mG) for higher performance microscopes. The two significant ‘threats’ to achieving this performance are mains power interference (50 Hz/60 Hz) and Quasi-DC disturbance.


This is the disturbance or perturbation of the Earth’s DC field casued by moving objects. These threats can be vehicles, lifts, mechanical equipment and other dynamic bodies, especially ones containing Ferrous materials.

Each application is different. The mass, velocity and distance of moving objects have an effect. Global EMC is a specialist in mitigating these effects.


Power frequency
This field comes from electrical apparatus located near the TEM room, such as transformers, power distribution rooms, high current mains cables and motors.

The fields are proportional to the electrical current, so when load demands change (e.g. switching appliances on or off) then the fields change, which can casue problems for the TEM instruments.

The solution

The TEM Shielded Room can be configured as a self-standing structure or fixed to the surface of the host building. It is constructed of a modular high magnetic permeability shield Iron+ ® that enables a fast and efficient construction process. The shield is designed specifically for TEM room shielding applications and is compatible with the specs of all microscope manufacturers.

The shield will be designed around the size and shape of the room and microscope. All intrusions into the shield are carefully designed and manufactured to allow compatibility while preserving the integrity of the shield. Active magnetic field cancelling systems are used to complement the Iron+ ® shielding to increase the overall performance of the solution.
