Detection, Quantification and Advanced Characterization of Non-metallic Inclusions in Steels
ZEISS X-ray Microscopes
Non-metallic inclusions (NMI) are present in all grades of steels and related alloys. NMI that do not fall into standard categories can be located by light microscopy combined with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) mapping. This allows full characterization of all inclusions in the steel to develop improved products and processes.
Multi-modal characterization and advanced analysis options for industry and research
Routine inspection and quality control tasks can be achieved rapidly and accurately using light and electron microscopy in industrially-focused workflows. Now, multi-modal microscopy is capable of providing a vast array of analytical capabilities.
Enabling Premium 3D Crystallographic Imaging in Your Laboratory
Single-phase polycrystalline materials in steel, alloys, and ceramics do not exhibit absorption contrast to reveal underlying grain microstructure. Now, advanced laboratory-based diffraction contrast tomography enables 3D characterization capabilities of these challenging structures.
Integrated SEM and Raman Imaging of Lithium Ion Batteries
To support the development of new batteries, electrode designs, and energy storage materials for the automotive industry, portable batteries, the renewable energy market, and the electronics industry calls for analytical methods that display various morphological and chemical properties.
Advanced Segmentation for Industrial Materials using Machine Learning
Segmentation is the division of images into defined regions for subsequent categorization and analysis. By analyzing these regions, and the borders between them, we can obtain quantitative, actionable information. These analyses depend on the accuracy and reliability of segmentation results.
