The Quattro ESEM is the ultimate analytical platform, thanks to its chamber that allows for a range of accessories. Analytical capabilities include energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) with ports for 180-degree dual EDS attachment, electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) coplanar with EDS, and wavelength dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (WDS).
The Quattro ESEM supports an optional High Vacuum Heating Stage, AutoScript, a Python-based scripting tool and a new RGB cathodoluminescence (CL) detector. The RGB CL detector produces color images highlighting sample properties not visible with conventional electron or X-ray imaging techniques. The High Vacuum Heating Stage allows for clean sample observations at high temperature. With AutoScript, users can program imaging and stage movements for unattended data acquisition.Quattro ESEM applications include:
Characterization in situ
Quattro’s versatility makes it well-suited to broad range of topics in materials science. It is equally adept at performing conventional high-resolution SEM imaging/analysis and dynamic in situ experiments. It allows researchers to study the widest range of samples in their natural state for the most accurate information about structure and composition.Unique Environmental Mode
Quattro’s environmental SEM (ESEM) capability allows scientists to study materials in a range of conditions, such as wet/humid, hot, or reactive environments, as they develop new materials and products for a myriad of disciplines, including construction, automotive, packaging, coatings and energy. Quattro’s unique ability to study the progress of chemical reactions, such as oxidation, corrosion, etching, crystal growth, and catalysis, can have a big impact on science and the environment.
