Material composition by backscattered electron (BSE) imaging
Elemental analysis and mapping using energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS)
Variable pressure mode for non-conductive specimens – i.e. not possible carbon/gold coating
Non-destructive analysis on big components due to a large chamber (300mm x 110mm)
In-situ micro-mechanical uniaxial tests with a 2kN load cell and video capture
Environmental capability with the Cryostage and Quantomix cells, for analyses on beam sensitive materials or hydrated samples (e.g. biological materials, plants, food products, emulsions, concretes, suspensions, lubricants, etc.).
