Why use FEG-SEM

Why use FEG-SEM?

FEG-SEM (Field Emission Gun – Scanning Electron Microscope) provides the very highest resolution imaging compared to regular SEM. It’s now available in an easy-to-use, desktop instrument: the Phenom Pharos G2.

Crystal Orientation in Geology

Studying Crystal Orientation in Geology with Cathodoluminescence Polarisation-Filtered Spectrum Imaging

Cathodoluminescence can be used to study crystal structure orientation – in this example we look at how it can be used on a geological sample.

Thermo Phenom Pharos G2

New Thermo Scientific Phenom Pharos G2 Desktop FEG-SEM

The Thermo Scientific Phenom Pharos G2 is a desktop FEG-SEM (Field Emission Gun – Scanning Electron Microscope) with upgraded features and low kV imaging.

SEM in Battery Development

Analysing Graphite with SEM in Lithium Ion Battery Development

How desktop SEM can used in-house in lithium ion battery development to analyse graphite and battery materials.

Integrated SEM-EDS for Failure Analysis

Failure Analysis with Integrated SEM-EDS

Integrating SEM and EDS in one system makes it much quicker and easier to identify the root cause of failures. It’s up to twice as fast as conventional techniques, for a lower cost-per-sample and long-term savings.

NEW: Thermo Scientific Phenom Desktop SEM

BlueScientific is now the official UK distributor of Phenom entry-level SEM instruments from Thermo Scientific in the UK and Ireland. We now offer the most comprehensive entry-level range for industry QC and academic research: the fastest and highest resolution in their class.

Gatan Continuum K3 Stela

Energy-Filtered 4D STEM with the Gatan GIF Continuum K3 (incorporating Stela)

A new fully-integrated system from Gatan and DECTRIS provides low-voltage capabilities for electron counting on EELS, EFTEM and energy-filtered 4D STEM over the entire 30 – 300 kV voltage range.

Analyse Contaminants in Battery Materials with SEM-EDS

Analyse Contaminants in Battery Materials with Combined SEM / EDS

Combined SEM-EDS can be used to locate and identify contamination quickly and easily. The Thermo Scientific Axia ChemiSEM fully integrates the two techniques.

In-Situ EM Video Tutorials

In-Situ EM Data Processing Tutorial Videos (Gatan Microscopy Suite: GMS 3)

A series of video tutorials demonstrating how to use Gatan’s IS player, part of GMS 3 (Gatan Microscopy Suite) software for TEM/SEM.

Identifying defects in polymers

Characterising Glass Fibre-Reinforced Polymers and Composite Materials with SEM-EDS

SEM-EDS can be used to characterise the composition of polymer composites. This is useful in failure analysis, to detect and identify contaminants and defects, and to check homogeneity.
