Schottky Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope SU5000

Schottky Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope SU5000

Innovative analytical FE-SEM allows for a simple transition between high vacuum and variable pressure mode. EM Wizard is a knowledge-based system for SEM imaging that goes beyond basic preset conditions and recipes. Its ease of use opens a new gateway for material research, development, and area beyond our imagination.

    Overview


    Watch this 6-min video and see how the SU5000 and
    EM Wizard work together!

    The SU5000 FE-SEM has forever changed SEM operations. Ground-breaking computer-assisted technology from Hitachi, referred to as the EM Wizard, offers a new level of SEM operation and control. Expert or novice, the result is now the same: Highest quality nano-scale images at everyone's fingertips!

    Features

    • A novel, revolutionary user interface, EM Wizard, provides all users with optimum levels of resolution, repeatability, and throughput. With EM Wizard, beginners become experts overnight.
    • Automatic axis adjustment technology (auto-calibration) restores the microscope to its "best condition" on demand.
    • A robust "draw-out" specimen chamber accommodates large specimens (-200 mmφ, -80 mmH).
    • Rapid sample exchange with evacuation to observation in 3 minutes or less.
    • Automated, intuitive on-demand image optimization on the fly.
    • A visual and interactive guide offers 'pick and choose' SEM modes to ensure best operating conditions.
    • With the 3D MultiFinder tool, samples are easily tilted and rotated with the image remaining centered and in focus.
