FEI - NOVA NANO SEM


NovaNanoSEMSmall.jpg

The Nova NanoSEM 450 is a Schottky Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM) that combines high- and low-voltage ultra-high resolution capabilities with the world’s only low-vacuum, high-resolution imaging solution. The instrument features a two-mode final lens, beam deceleration and environmental SEM technologies, bringing unprecedented versatile capabilities to researchers and developers in the nanotechnology laboratory working with a variety of nano-materials and/or -devices.

The system can be used for e-beam writing with a NPGS Nanopattern Generation System (Nabity). Switching between imaging and writing mode is easy with pre-saved alignment configurations.

This SEM is located in CEPSR 10th floor cleanroom. Clean room access is required in order to use it.
