Bioscience

Field Emission Electron Sources provide much greater resolution than with conventional SEM , especially at lower voltages. This allows much better imaging of fine surface detail and observation of delicate and uncoated specimens.

The main applications of this microscope are:

  • High resolution over a wide range of acceleration voltages
  • Secondary and backscattered electron imaging
