Research Area

Surface Technology

Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)

Examples of use:

  • Different contrast types: topography contrast, material contrast
  • Mapping of
    • Metal surfaces
    • Plastic surfaces
    • Ceramic and glass surfaces
    • Powders
    • Biological samples
    • Polished surfaces

Device configuration:

  • Imaging of high vacuum stable conductive and non-conductive surfaces
  • Resolution down to 1 nm (sample-dependent)
  • Preparation technique: carbon vaporization, gold sputtering, critical point drying (for biological samples)
