High Resolution Imaging with FEG-SEM

FEG-SEM image of polymer fibres, taken with the Thermo Scientific Phenom Pharos G2, the only desktop FEG-SEM system. Due to the high performance at low acceleration voltage of FEG compared to other SEM electron sources, you can study insulating and beam-sensitive materials without sample preparation. Samples are not damaged by the beam and nanoscale features are clearly visible. More about FEG-SEM…
