Scaning Electron Microscopy



The Quanta 200 SEM is a flexible, simple-to-use instrument.  It can be operated regular high-vacuum and low-vacuum modes for imaging many varieties of sample.  The ease of use allows people to get started collecting data quickly after being introduced to the microscope.  It uses a conventional tungsten electron source giving a resolution of 3.5nm.  It is equipped with a range of detectors including Secondary Electron (SE), Back Scattered (BSE), an internal TV camera (CCD) and a range of special detectors for using the SEM in LV or ESEM mode.
The results from automatic stage or beam scanning are stored and may be displayed in a variety of different ways including colored maps and pole figures.
