Resource Type

  1. Scanning electron microscope


  1. Resource Description
    The Quanta 200 Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is a flexible, general purpose, simple-to-use instrument that can be operated in either regular high-vacuum or low-vacuum modes, enabling users to image a wide variety of samples. This ease of use allows users to start collecting data quickly after their initial training, along with making the instrument an excellent hands-on teaching platform for various Materials Science courses. The electron beam in this instrument is generated by a conventional tungsten filament electron source, which, under optimal conditions, is capable of resolving features as small as 3 nm. The Quanta is equipped with standard Secondary Electron (SE) and Back Scatter Electron (BSE) detectors, in addition to an Energy Low magnification secondary electron image of sugar crystals on carbonDispersive X-ray Analysis (EDS) detector and an internal TV camera. Features of the Quanta200 include: • SE, BSE, and EDS Detectors • Accelerating voltage between 200 V and 30 kV • 3.0 nm resolution at 30 kV • 10 nm resolution at 3 kV • EDAX 60 mm2 Octane Super EDS detector
