 Scanning Electron Microscope JEOL JSM IT300LV (High Vacuum – Low Vacuum 10/650 Pa - 0.3-30kV)  Energy Dispersive Microanalysis (EDS) Oxford INCA Energy 200  EDS detector: INCA X-act SDD thin window.  Emitech K950 high vacuum graphite coater for qualitative and semiquantitative microanalysis.  JEOL JEC-530 Automatic Carbon Coater with Thikness Monitor for quantitative microanalysis

Main applications:  Morphological observations and imaging.  Quantitative analysis on polished samples and qualitative - semiquantitative determination on unpolished – untreated samples.  Spatial correlation image-analysis (Point & ID).  EDS compositional mapping. Specifications:  Morphology and imaging in high vacuum mode, with secondary electrons detector [SED] (3 nm resolution at 30 kV) – Magnification can vary between 5x and 300 000x.  Stage: 5 axes (X, Y, Z, R, T) motorized and controlled by CPU, R axys Eucentric. Maximum sample size: 203 mm (180 mm observable), max weight 2 kg (tilt not allowed over 1 kg)  Backscattered electron detector topographic imaging [BED-T] for morphology in High Vacuum and Low Vacuum Mode (10 Pa to 650 Pa) (4 nm resolution at 30 kV, 10 Pa).  Backscatter compositional Detector [BED-C] for the observation of chemical differences in the sample - BED-S signal combining for more tridimensional pictures.  Chemical analysis by EDS microprobe: elements from Z = 5 ( boron ) to Z = 92 (uranium) could be detected with a detection limit (LOD) of about 1000 ppm.


 

Quantitative analysis: performed after calibration on Polaron standards, requires an appropriate sample preparation (polishing). X-ray compositional maps: acquisition of multielemental qualitative and semiquantitative compositional maps on polished samples, also on wide specimen and large area.
