Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FE-SEM)

Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FE-SEM)

The field emission scanning electron microscope enables the clear observation of the minute surface irregularity of solid samples beyond the reach of an optical microscope by scanning the surface with narrow electron beams after rendering it electrically conductive through the deposition of metal or carbon and by detecting and measuring the intensity of reflected electrons and secondary electrons.
