Information the equipment can provide
Hitachi S-5500 SEM provides sub-nanometer resolution and is also capable of imaging in scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) mode. The bright field (BF) and dark field (DF) Duo-STEM detector allows simultaneous observation of BF and DF STEM images. The equipped energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) can probe the chemical composition of materials at nanometer scale.
