- The field emission electron source (X-FEG) delivers high density and high coherent electron beam.
- The SuperX Energy Dispersive Spectrometry (SuperX EDS) system with the four Silicon Drift Detectors (SDD) that offers maximum collection efficiency with a solid angle of 0.9 srad, while being able to collect X-Rays at very high count rates.
- The 4k x 4k Ceta 16M CMOS camera provides large field-of-view, fast (up to >30 fps full frame, >250 fps 512 x 512) imaging with high sensitivity and dynamic range.
- Embedded Piezo-enhanced stage provides precise control of sample navigation and imaging stability for drift compensation.
- Differential phase contrast (DPC) imaging can be utilized to image local electric and magnetic fields, and image light elements (low Z) at very low dose.
- New software Velox provides advanced acquisition and analysis functionality for STEM and EDS data, on a 64 bit software platform.
- The full remote-control of the system can reduce the environmental sensitivity.
- An analytical platform for high resolution and in-situ dynamic observations: equipped with cooling stage, in-situ liquid/gas holders and 3D tomography holders.
