    ZEISS Atlas 5 – Your Intuitive Platform for 3D Workflows

    Intuitive Platform for 3D Workflows

    Intelligent algorithms for efficient and automated acquisition

    • Work with freeform exact region of interest and scan only designated areas. Get reproducible results with configurable imaging protocols that are flexible to work across samples 
    • Reduce training and enable unsupervised runs with the help of robust auto-focus and auto-stigmation 
    • Synergistic workflows across instruments: the platform supports multiple sessions on multiple instruments 


    Large mosaic tiling to get more information in less time

    The platform combines a 16 bit scan generator and dual super-sampling signal acquisition hardware with image processing and control software.

    • Acquire single frames with up to 32 k x 32 k pixels on SEMs and up to 50 k x 40 k on FIB-SEMs.
    • Acquire two detector signals simultaneously with 10-bit intensity 


    Sample centric correlative environment for integrated workflows across technologies

    • Find buried structures using X-ray microscopy and import 3D volume data to FIB-SEM
    • Navigate efficiently – move to regions of interest with a single mouse click
    • Cut with confidence – plan FIB milling using virtual cross-sections of X-ray data
  • Modules

    Benefit from ZEISS Atlas 5 Modules

    3D Tomography

    3D FIB-SEM acquisition with patented slice thickness measurement and active control. Save time with automated sample preparation, exact region of interest (xROI) volume imaging, advanced sample tracking, predictive drift correction and auto-tuning. Integrated data viewer with post-processing workflow: stack alignment, volume cropping, and image stack export.


    3D Analytics

    Add 3D EDS mapping to high resolution FIB-SEM tomography acquisition. Conditions for EDS analytics and high-resolution imaging can be optimized independently; including landing energy, dwell time, and spatial resolution in all three dimensions. The system switches automatically between analytical and imaging conditions during acquisition. Flexible visualization allows simultaneous views of SEM images and processed elemental maps.
