Demand for faster, smaller, and more interconnected devices continues to drive atomic scale technology developments. Researchers and engineers need reliable and rapid analysis and characterization at these dimensions, which only transmission electron microscopy (TEM) can provide.

The Thermo Scientific Talos F200E (Scanning) Transmission Electron Microscope provides high-resolution STEM and TEM imaging with minimal distortion, combined with high-throughput energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) functionality, tailored for a wide range of semiconductor defect analysis and research applications.

A high-productivity solution for semiconductor and microelectronics analysis

Supporting the fast pace of process development and yield ramp significantly strains semiconductor analysis labs, as they must provide repeatable, high-resolution characterization of a wide variety of materials and devices. The Talos F200E (S)TEM was designed with these labs in mind, delivering >1.5× faster EDS analysis compared to previous Talos models and ≤1% TEM image distortion. The speed and repeatability improvements make the Talos F200E (S)TEM the industry choice for device analysis, defect characterization, and yield support.
