Temperature Controlled Sample Holder Thermo Scientific™

The Thermo Scientific™ Temperature Controlled Sample Holder has been developed by Thermo Fisher Scientific and Deben in order to study vacuum-sensitive and vulnerable samples such as biological, food or organic coatings. The Temperature Controlled Sample Holder is able to control the temperature of the sample and therefore influence the humidity around the sample. This minimizes the effect of the electron beam and vacuum damage of the samples. 

Standard Sample Holder Thermo Scientific™

The ultimate high-resolution sample holder. Shipped as standard with every Thermo Scientifc™ Phenom™ Pure/Pro(X)/Pharos system. Optimized for best imaging results and able to accommodate 3D-samples mounted on standard sample pin stubs.

Standard Sample Holder XL Thermo Scientific™

The Thermo Scientific™ Standard Sample Holder for the Thermo Scientific™ Phenom™ XL Desktop SEM is the compact stage allowing analysis of samples of up to 100 mm x 100 mm. In spite of this much larger sample size, a proprietary loading shuttle keeps the vent/load cycle to a minimum, which in practice enables a throughput that is a few factors higher than any comparable SEM system.

Tensile Sample Holder Thermo Scientific™

Thermo Scientific™ Tensile Sample Holder for Thermo Scientific™ Phenom XL. Tensile testing is one of the simplest and most widely used mechanical tests. By measuring the force required to elongate a specimen to breaking point, material properties can be determined that will allow designers and quality managers to predict how materials and products will behave in their intended applications.

Motorized Tilt & Rotation Sample Holder Thermo Scientific™

Revealing the hidden treasures of all features on your sample is now possible with the Thermo Scientific™ Motorized Tilt & Rotation Sample Holder. Samples can have lines and holes, or have multi-layer structures. The new Motorized Tilt & Rotation Sample Holder allows analysis of the sample from all visible sides and enables a unique 3D image of your sample.

Charge Reduction Sample Holder Thermo Scientific™

This sample holder is designed to reduce sample charging and eliminate extra sample preparation of non-conductive samples. Imaging samples such as paper, polymers, organic materials, ceramics, glass and coatings becomes fast and trouble free.

Electrical Feed-through Sample Holder Thermo Scientific™

The Thermo Scientific™ Electrical Feed-through Sample Holder allows users to connect electrical probes to the sample for in-situ measurements. Six quick release pin connections can be used for various signals to be read and voltages or currents to be applied to the sample simultaneously while the sample is observed in the SEM.

Eucentric Sample Holder Thermo Scientific™

In many SEM applications, a user can gain more insight into sample properties if the sample can be tilted and rotated. The Thermo Scientific™ Eucentric Sample Holder for the Phenom XL has been specifically developed with that in mind. The holder contains a sub-stage that allows users to easily and safely look at a sample from all sides. 

Micro Tool Sample Holder Thermo Scientific™

Imaging long axial shaped samples without sample modification is possible with the Thermo Scientific™ Micro Tool Sample Holder. Imaging objects such as drill bits, milling tools and injection needles is fast and easy using the Micro Tool Sample Holder. Imaging coatings and cutting angles is possible by rotating and tilting the region of interest without unloading the sample from the holder.

Sample Holder Inserts Thermo Scientific™

Cross-sectional imaging of coatings and multilayer samples becomes fast and easy with this metallurgical insert. Its smart, split clamping mechanism eliminates the need for screws and tools to clamp the sample.

uHeater Thermo Scientific™

The Thermo Scientific™ μHeater holder is a high vacuum compatible ultra-fast heating stage for in situ sample heating up to 1200 °C.

Metallurgical Sample Holder Thermo Scientific™

The base of this Thermo Scientific™ sample holder is the same as that of the Standard Sample Holder, except that this holder is designed to support resin-mounted samples. This holder is the preferred solution for metallurgy and when working with inserts.
