We know how to bring the power of science to every phase of your product lifecycle.

A Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is a type of electron microscope that images a sample by scanning it with a beam of electrons in a raster scan pattern. 

The technique uses an e-beam to raster over the sample surface while detecting secondary electrons, backscatter electrons, and X-rays. The electrons interact with the atoms that make up the sample producing signals that contain information about the sample’s surface typography, composition, and other properties such as electrical conductivity. A typical SEM contrast is based on a difference in secondary electron yield or topographical features.

A Scanning Electron Microscope is very useful for particle analysis, contamination ID, determining the thickness of thin films, investigating delamination, and element composition.

Learn how SEM combined with EDS is routinely used for semi-quantitative elemental analysis of a wide range of materials.
