Focused Ion Beam (Helios 650)

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

TheHelios650NanoLab(HNL650)is a Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscope equipped withspectroscopicdetectorsto allow elemental and phase measurementsto be performed at high spatial resolution. TheHNL650 operates between 1 keV and 30keVelectronbeamenergyand2kVand30kVionbeam acceleratingvoltage.TheHNL650hasanElstarthermal(Schottky) field emissionelectron source and aTomahawk ion column using a Ga+ liquid metal ion source. It is used for3Dchemicalimagingoforganicsamplesandautomatedhyperspectralanalytical methoddevelopment. The HNL650 is also equipped with retractable STEM detector, cryo stage, nano manipulator and multiple gas injection systems.Specifications / Capabilities:* up to 30 keV electron beam energy
