    Helios G4 UX_iac

    ​The Helios G4 is a SEM with FIB capabilities. FIB is used to modify or machine materials at the micro and nanoscale; and to deposit material such as platinum, carbon, gold, etc. via ion beam induced deposition.

    The FIB is also commonly used to prepare very thin samples (typically ~100 nanometers) for the transmission electron microscope.

    The Helios G4 is equipped with a cryo stage that allows examination of specimens at very low temperature ( -180 deg.C).​​​

    Electron Microscope


    Magellan_iac
    Scanning electron microscope - SEM - that produces images of a sample by scanning it with a focused beam of electrons. The electrons interact with atoms in the sample, producing various signals that contain information about the sample's surface topography and composition. This is is an ultra-high resolution field emission SEM with UniColor (UC) technology, 2-mode final lens (immersion and field-free), SE/BSE in-lens detection, a solid state concentric backscatter (CBS) detector and beam deceleration capability. Combined, these features help maximize resolution, surface detail and contrast at very low voltages. The EDS attachment allows for elemental identification/localization.
    Sample - conductive, semi-conductive and poorly conductive materials in the form of bulk, powders and thin films. These include nano-particles, nano-tubes and -wires, porous materials, plastics, polymers, glass substrates, and organic and inorganic materials.

    Nova Nano_iac
    Nova Nano SEM 630 is a scanning electron microscope that produces images of a sample by scanning it with a focused beam of electrons. The electrons interact with atoms in the sample, producing various signals that contain information about the sample's surface topography and composition. This is field-emission SEM capable of ultra-high resolution characterization at high and low voltage in low and/or high vacuum environment. It is equipped with advanced optics that include a 2-mode final lens (immersion and field-free), SE/BSE in-lens detection, solid state backscatter detectors and beam deceleration technologies. Analytical capabilities are provided by EDS and EBSD from the EDAX. The instrument is also complemented by Quorum’s cryo stage and preparation chamber that allows characterization of wet biological and non-biological samples in low temperature.

    Sample - variety of materials including biological samples (with or without sample preparations), nano-particles, powders, nano-tubes and -wires, porous materials, plastic, polymers, glass substrates, organic materials and thin films​.​
