The leading solution for AFM in SEM
The combination of complementary techniques is a key success factor for gaining new insights into the micro and nano worlds. AFSEM®, offered by GETec Microscopy, enables you to easily combine two of the most powerful analysis techniques available — AFM and SEM — to greatly extend your correlative microscopy and analysis possibilities.
“Constantly, applications and challenges arise for which the AFSEM is not only practical, but essential. That starts with direct correlation of specific particles or structures and ends with vacuum conditions as prerequisite, such as thermal measurements. Furthermore, the AFSEM accelerates the work-flow and therefore increases the efficiency for many studies.”
“The high spatial resolution of AFSEM, especially in Z direction, strongly stretched the application of our SEM. Combined with the high angle resolution of EBSD, the AFSEM becomes a powerful tool for the research of phase transformation.”
“What was really convincing to us is the huge versatility of this combination of an Atomic Force Microscope with our excellent optical microscope for our challenging materials and problems. We simply can use real life specimen without big preparation.”
“AFSEM® not only extends the resolution of our microscopes by an order of magnitude, it extends our measurement capabilities beyond topography concerning material composition.”
“Thanks to the AFSEM we can now perform in situ investigations in our FIB microscope, which were not possible before. Especially the possibility to immediately control the result of your nanofabrication experiment is a real beneﬁt!”
