High-quality sample preparation is critical for successful high-resolution material analysis with STEM or TEM. It is also considered to be one of the most challenging and time-consuming tasks in materials characterization labs. Conventional methods used to prepare ultra-thin samples required for S/TEM are slow and can require many hours, or even days, of effort by highly trained personnel. This is further complicated by the variety of different materials and the need for site-specific information.
Recent developments in DualBeam™ (FIB-SEM) technology, such as the addition of innovative software for automation and ease of use and the availability of multiple ion species, resolve many of these challenges. Register for our live webinar and learn how leading research labs are using our new Thermo Scientific™ Helios 5 Laser PFIB and Thermo Scientific™ Helios™ 5 Hydra™ DualBeam to advance their materials characterization.
Benefits of attending:
Advanced atom probe/TEM sample preparation and 3D applications in Materials Science
Julie Cairney and Vijay Bhatia from the University of Sydney will review the applications of multiple ion species plasma FIB technology for atom probe sample preparation and provide hands-on guidance for the successful preparation of highest quality samples. Kurt Langworthy and Valerie Brogden from the University of Oregon will highlight their latest results on optimizing milling conditions for different materials and present a systematic approach for further characterization of ion-matter interactions using a collaborative database.
Exploring large scale material processing with multiple ion species plasma FIB and femto-second laser ablation
Tim Burnett, from the University of Manchester will show how fs-laser integration extends the plasma FIB characterization capabilities and will present a range of case studies focusing on multi-scale, multi-modal investigation of novel engineering materials. Brandon Van Leer from Thermo Fisher will provide an overview of the focused ion beam applications and introduce the latest innovations in plasma FIB instrumentation, such as fast switchable multiple ion species available on Helios 5 Hydra, and fully integrated femto-second laser technology featured in Helios 5 Laser PFIB.
