The Center for Electron Nanoscopy (CEN) is a state-of-the-art center for electron microscopy at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).[1] Inaugurated in December 2007, the institute was funded by a donation of DKK100 million from the A.P. Møller and Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller Foundation.[2] DTU CEN houses seven new electron microscopes built by FEI Company ranging from a standard scanning electron microscope to two highly specialized Titan transmission electron microscopes. The microscopes are available for use by both in-house and external users.

DTU CEN's scientific advisors are professors Archie Howie and David J. Smith.

The center is located at DTU, in the northeastern end of the city of Lyngby. The instruments are housed in a new building designed especially for the microscopes, 314, and the offices are located on the first floor of the neighbouring building, 307.[3]
