Secondary electron detector (ET-SED) for surface morphology imaging
Ultra-sensitive, lens-mounted directional backscatter electron detector (DBS) for compositional contrast
ThermoScientific Pathfinder EDS UltraDry 60M – Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) for semi-quantitative compositional analyses
ThermoScientific Pathfinder EBSD Quasor 2 System- Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) for determining the microstructure of crystalline substances, often for mineral phase identification, grain size distributions, and determination of crystal
High vacuum, low vacuum, and variable pressure (e.g. Environmental SEM) modes
Peltier heating/cooling stage -20°C to +60°C
