Throughout human history, materials have played a critical role in the development of civilization, and materials science impacts everything from everyday household items to space applications. Since the invention of electron microscopy and scanning probe microscopy, these techniques have made important contributions to the field of materials science, since they allow the morphology, composition, physical properties, and dynamic behavior of materials to be evaluated. They are indispensable for product quality control and the development of new materials. Hitachi High-Tech offers a diverse product line-up, including tabletop SEM systems that allow quick user-friendly operation, FE-SEM and TEM systems for performing precise detailed analysis, FIB-SEM systems that are capable of three-dimensional analysis.
