SEM

Tescan Mira II LMU

Field emission (Shottky-FE) SEM equipped with SE, in-lens SE and BSE detectors. EDX and EBSD analyses are performed using a Penta-FET 3x detector and a Symmetry camera, respectively, both monitored by the AZtec 4.2 software package released by Oxford Instruments. This instrument also allows for low-vacuum BSE observations up to 50 Pa.

Camscan MV2300

SEM equipped with a standard thermionic source (W filament). The instrument is used for everyday SE, low-vacuum SE and BSE imaging, as well as for panchromatic cathodoluminescence (pan-CL) imaging. The instrumentation also includes a Penta-FET EDX detector released by Oxford Instruments, and the SEM microtomographic equipment (SEM micro-CT) manufactured by Bruker (SkyScan) for 3D volumetric analyses.
