Add transmitted electron imaging capability to your FE-SEM or Crossbeam system. Get additional information out of your ultrathin biological or solid-state specimens without need to use a dedicated Transmission Electron Microscope and enjoy flexibility and versatility.
Increase productivity and improve image quality of your FE-SEM by retrofitting the new angle selective Backscatter (AsB) Detector. Benefit from high speed and increased sensitivity due to improved detector and electronics design.
The aBSD detector is used to detect backscattered electrons that have been scattered under very low angles. It provides a great variety of contrast information through the detector’s six input channels.
The Energy selective Backscattered (EsB) Detector is suitable for clear compositional contrast. It is an annular shaped incolumn detector that is located above the In-lens detector. The ability to detect BSE makes sub-surface information and nano-scale composition visible.
The BSD4 detector is used to detect backscattered electrons that have been scattered under very low angles. The COMPO-Mode is suitable to produce high quality material contrast, meaning heavy materials are displayed brighter than lightweight materials.
Rapid imaging with the desired resolution requires high electron doses and acceleration voltages, which can cause charging effects and sample damage that compromise image quality. ZEISS Sense BSD combines high-resolution ultrastructural imaging with a new degree of efficiency and image quality, making TEM-like imaging possible with your SEM.
RISE (Raman Imaging and Scanning Electron Microscope) offers you a chemical and structural fingerprint of your sample: Recognize molecular and crystallographic information and perform 3D analysis of the sample.
The ZEISS YAG (Yttrium Aluminum Garnet) single crystal scintillator BSD detector enables a higher efficiency of light conductance, which is ideal for low signal imaging. The material which is free of radiation damage turns the YAG BSD into a detector, suitable for all beam energy ranges.
The BSD-Detector is used to detect backscattered electrons, that have been scattered under very low angles. The new amplifier provides higher detector efficiencies and delivers a variety of contrast information, much higher gain and a lower noise level.
The new ETSE Detector (Everhart Thornely Secondary Electron) with optically coupled photomultiplier is designed to improve the SE collection at lower kV operations and longer working distances.
The fourth generation Variable Pressure SE detector (VPSE G4) convinces with its improved collection signal and thereby a faster response time. Higher scan speeds enable you an increasement of productivity. VPSE G4 provides 20% more contrast up to 400 Pa pressure (at 20 keV).
If SEM imaging alone isn’t enough to gain a complete understanding of parts or samples, investigators will turn to Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) to acquire spatially resolved elemental chemistry information.
Create structures in nanometer range by either removing or applying surface material and using different systems (e.g. Atomic Force Microscope), or benefit from multi-modal images and comprehensive multiscale with the various options of ZEISS Atlas 5
The Atomic Force Microscope adds calibrated, atomic-level, 3D resolution and high resolution measurements to the existing SEM functionalities.
ZEISS Atlas 5 makes your life easier: create comprehensive multiscale, multi-modal images with a sample-centric correlative environment.

Select an area of interest with a simple swipe of your finger and the EVO-System will automatically collect your data, running unattended whilst you perform other tasks. The upgrade enables you a comfortable workflow through its contemporary touch interface and a variety of automated tools.
Increase your convenience and facilitate your work routine e.g. reduced loading time and increased sample throughput through the Airlock or a significantly reduced noise level through the Vac Quiet Mode. Decontaminate your specimen and chamber with the Plasma Cleaner or improve image quality through the compensation of charging effect with the Flood Gun or the Charge Compensation
The airlock allows efficient loading of samples without breaking the existing vacuum and thus reducing the risk of contamination of the sample chamber. By using this method sample exchange time is also significantly reduced.
The Charge Compensation system offers localized discharging of non-conductive specimens by ionization of nitrogen. High resolution combined with an additional expansion of analytical capabilities are, with the integration of a Charge Compensation system, not restricted to conductive samples only but can also be executed for all kinds of non-conductive samples.
ZEISS offers you a fast and cost-efficient solution for specimen and chamber decontamination. A Plasma Cleaner is used to generate reactive gas-phase radicals in a plasma. The radicals migrate into the instrument chamber and chemically react with the unwanted hydrocarbons.
The ZEISS Focal CC (Focal Charge Compensation) is an improved gas injection system to increase image quality by eliminating charging effects. Former specimen charging, particularly in samples containing large regions of bare resin resulted in a significant degradation in image quality and distortion.
By using Vac ECO Quiet Mode and with help from a vacuum reservoir the pre-pump is automatically switched off after reaching a factory pre-set vacuum level. The vacuum reservoir allows the system to be operated for hours without the need of the pre-pump. This results in both the reduction of noise levels and energy consumption.
Upgrade your microscope with additional accessories such as sample holders, the latest version of our dual joystick controller and control panel or an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) which ensures the safety of your system in case of a power failure
An Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) will be used if there is no steady supply of electrical power possible. It is designed to bridge short power failures and to shut down the microscope in a controlled manner during longer power failures.
With the Dual Joystick Controller and the Control Panel installed, operating becomes much more comfortable. The Dual Joystick Controller can be used for stage control and specimen navigation and the Control Panel gives you easy access to the most frequently used functions of the SEM.
