Desktop SEM


The electron microscope is a kind of microscope that uses electrons instead of light to create an image of the sample. Its resolving power is much higher than a light microscope allowing us to see finer features. Our equipment is a compact Phenom XL Desktop SEM acquired from PhenomWorld and combines a high quality scanning electron microscope and an optical camera for never lost navigation.
