ZEISS Product Launch: Discover Advanced Surface Imaging with Intuitive Imaging Workflows using ZEISS GeminiSEM Platform

December 16, Wednesday | 9.30 AM - 10.30 AM IST


The new age surface characterization techniques and material research demands new advancements in the electron microscopy field.

ZEISS being pioneers in electron microscopy and electron optics have built a new series of field emission scanning electron microscope to take the surface imaging to next level with very intuitive and fast imaging techniques. The platform will enable the researchers to gain maximum output from their materials with minimum effort in front of the tool. For a multi-user environment, a reliable and reproducible imaging workflow will prove effective.

Ease of use in high resolution imaging especially when faced with challenging samples for novice users makes a core facility a dream place for young researchers. Imaging beam sensitive samples without sputter coating is becoming a mandate to understand their surface morphology and analytics in various material science applications. Our new platform provides you with a dedicated variable pressure modes now with advanced detection technology with superior contrasting on your sample surface.

The greatly increased field of view permits easy sample navigation. The engine drives the electron optics to provide magnifications from 1 × to 2 mio x, taking care of alignment, calibration and focus along the way. This saves you time while making lengthy alignments obsolete.

Auto functions such as auto-wobble and the new patented autofocus provide clear, crisp images within seconds. Python scripting then uses these features in automated workflows such as 3D STEM tomography.
