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).

Instrument Specifications:

  • Schottky field emission gun; 0.3 - 30 kV operating voltage
  • Everhart-Thornley and dedicated backscattered electron detectors; SE+BSE or BSE only imaging
  • EDAX Octane Pro (10 mm squared active area) SDD EDS
  • EDAX Hikari Plus CCD EBSD camera
  • EDAX OIM Analysis 8 software
