FEI Quanta 3D FEGSEM
Instrument Manager (Acting): Dr Xi-Ya Fang
Instrument Location: G26
Description: A versatile dual beam system with a Ga ion beam for patterning and milling and electron beam for imaging and analysis. The ion beam may be used to prepare cross-sections, lamellae for transmission electron microscopy and pattern micron-sized prototypes and devices. The microscope can operate in high and low vacuum and environmental modes with a cold stage, enabling the imaging of insulating materials and frozen aqueous specimens. This system is also fitted with a large area SDD x-ray detector and EBSD system allowing for fast x-ray mapping and crystallographic scans. The XuM module permits tomography on a micron scale.
