Tabletop SEM microscope

, par L’équipe du LGPC

The new TM-1000 Tabletop Microscope from Hitachi High-Technologies is set to transform the field of basic microscopy.

The TM-1000 utilizes scanning electron microscope (SEM) technology. It is easy to use while retaining powerful imaging capabilities. Surface morphology is shown in stereoscopic detail with images in contrast due to different average atomic number composition within the sample.

It provides a real alternative to optical microscopes, stereo microscopes and confocal laser scanning microscopes. It has applications for many sectors including life science, food, cosmetics, healthcare, pharmaceutical, textiles, materials science, semiconductor and education.

The Hitachi’s MiniMEB LGPC is equipped with an EDS (Swift-ED) which allows :
• A local analysis of elements between sodium and uranium
• automatic identification of elements
The measurement part is equipped with a EDS detector SDD (Silicon Drift Detector) which operates without liquid nitrogen
