Scanning electron microscopy

Four scanning electron microscopes are available which are equipped with various analysis options such as energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD), electron beam induced current (EBIC), cathodoluminescence (CL) and atomic force microscope (AFM).

Zeiss Merlin

  • 0,8 nm resolutiona at 15kV 1,4nm at 1kV
  • 20V-30kV accelerating voltage
