Webinar: The ultimate S/TEM platform for the widest range of materials

(S)TEM, (scanning) transmission electron microscopy, and EDX, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, are complimentary techniques that allow you to characterize the structural and chemical composition of materials down to the atom.

Join our two-part webinar to learn about the latest advances in (S)TEM and EDX that have enabled the analysis of the widest range of materials to date, including challenging samples such as beam-sensitive materials.

In part one, we will introduce a new (S)TEM platform from Thermo Fisher Scientific that is ideally suited for the analysis of beam-sensitive materials. Learn how this instrument can:

  • Mitigate damage in beam sensitive specimens by switching between different accelerating voltages (between 30 and 300 kV) in a single microscopy session
  • Accommodate a radically different EDX concept that significantly broadens the range of materials that can be analyzed with STEM-EDX

In part two,Nestor Zaluzec, Senior Scientist, Educator and Inventor at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratorywill describe his own role in the development of X-ray detection technology, and how X-ray hyperspectral analysis can ultimately improve the quality of data that can be extracted from materials.
