SEM - Tescan MIRA3 - Status: Available
||*ANALYSIS OF RADIOACTIVE SPECIMENS WITH THIS INSTRUMENT IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED*
The Tescan MIRA3 scanning electron microscope rasters a focused energetic beam (probe) of electrons across a specimen surface. The interactions of the beam with the specimen are detected and then recorded as a function of probe position and used to generate two-dimensional images of the specimen. The signals that can be detected include secondary and backscattered electrons (for imaging), X-rays (for chemical analysis), and electron backscattered diffraction patterns (for structural analysis).
