Facilities for optical and electron microscopy and 3D X-ray imaging

E-SEM FEI Quanta 200 MKII with analytical system Pegasus (EBSD+EDS) from EDAX

Environmental SEM with tungsten filament, secondary electron (SE) and back-scatter electron (BSE) detectors as well as integrated Electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and Energy-Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS) analytical systems. The latter are Hikari XP camera EBSD and Octane Super SDD with 60 mm2 sensor EDS.

The core E-SEM instrument was kindly donated by Sigma Connectivity in Lund, Sweden.

Location: room M:2413

Keyence VHX-6000

Advanced digital optical microscope with light polarisation, differential interference contrast, various reflected and transmitted light illumination options. Its High-End analog capacities are further reinforced with latest digital-world technology including camera, X-Y-Z (40x40x49 mm3) motorised stage and image processing allowing fast large-area panoramic imaging, 3D surface reconstruction and post-acquisition processing and quantification. The instrument chassis also allows 360° stage rotation and +60° / -90° eucentric camera tilt.

The introduction of this instrument became possible thanks to the financial support from The Crafoord Foundation.

Location: room M:2413
