10^6 and beyond: New research applications for Materials Science

Thank you for registering, and enjoy the on demand version of the webinar, below!

DualBeam FIB/SEMs, integrated Focused Ion Beams with Scanning Electron Microscopes are routinely used to characterize structural information at the micro- and nanoscale. Xe Plasma FIB/SEMs have enabled researchers to access larger volumes of materials and metals with large grain structure to improve statistical accuracy for 2D and 3D analysis because of their large throughput capabilities. Xe Plasma FIB/SEM technology enables dramatically improved material removal rates compared to traditional methods - while maintaining exceptional surface quality and high-contrast, ultra high resolution imaging performance.

Novel strategies are being developed to produce samples for site specific 3D-EBSD analysis, fabrication of samples for dynamic mechanical testing and Gallium free thin sections for S/TEM analysis, using in-situ manipulators in combination with the large throughput capability of the Plasma FIB. We will discuss how Xe Plasma FIB technology opens the doors to new research applications such as the visualization and analysis polycrystalline metal samples after mechanical stress.

In addition to the ultra high-resolution capabilities, the webinar will examine the wider potential of Xe Plasma FIB technology for a variety of characterization techniques such as preparing samples for mechanical tests, TEM analysis and site specific 3D-EBSD & 3D-EDS.
