Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)


Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)

The Scanning Electron Microscope can yield detailed surface information, from 30x to 500,000x magnification. Analytical software for Energy Dispersive X-Rays analyses the energy released from the material due to the impact of the electron beam. Elements as light as Boron can be detected. Electron Backscatter Diffraction can provide information on crystal orientation, texture, phase, grain statistics and strain conditions. Additional Information.
