Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope (ESEM-FEG) with EDX

Model: Philips XL30 with EDAX Phoenix system

ESEM The ESEM from Philips combines the well established functions of a conventional SEM (high vacuum) with the possibility of an environmental (ESEM) mode. This technology permits the imaging of samples with a relative humidity up to 100% under low-vacuum conditions. The SEM is equipped with a field emission gun as electron source leading to a resolution of 1-2 nm. Moreover, the XL 30 has an Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analyser (EDX) for quantitative and qualitative chemical analysis.
