Product Overview

Phenom XL desktop Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is designed for extreme ease of use and allows faster imaging of large samples up to 100mm x 100mm. The proprietary venting/loading mechanism supports the highest throughput and ensures a time-to- image of less than 60 seconds. The unique optical navigation camera displays a view of the entire sample and allows the user to move to any spot on the sample with just a single click. The long-life CeB 6 electron source in combination with the four-segment Backscatter detector (BSD) yields sharp images together with chemical contrast information. The Phenom XL can also be equipped with a Secondary Electron Detector (SED) that supports surface sensitive imaging. Unlike other systems the Phenom has fully integrated X-Ray analysis (Energy Dispersive Spectrometer, EDS) that allows the user to quickly identify and assess the distribution of elements in a sample.

Further analysis is provided using optional ProSuite software that includes ParticleMetric, PoroMetric, FiberMetric and 3D Roughness Reconstruction.

The Phenom XL covers a wide range of applications such as Forensic investigation, Material characterisation, Metallurgy analysis, Process control, Pharmaceutical and Industrial research and more.

Phenom-World is now part of Thermo Fisher Scientific. The Phenom XL is a user friendly and affordable tool that bridges the gap between the optical microscope and ultra-high resolution microscopes. Originating from parent companies FEI and Philips, all Phenom desktop SEM systems are built to high quality standards and offer a new approach for faster high resolution imaging with extreme ease of use. The user interface supports both existing and new users to quickly become familiar with the system and get the most of it without the need for significant set-up or training.

Benefits

All in one imaging and analysis
Compact desktop SEM with X-ray (EDS) analysis that needs little space and no extra facilities that allows sample structures can be physically examined and their elemental composition determined.

Super-fast
After loading the sample an instant optical image is received followed by an electron image in < 60 seconds.

Ease of use with “never lost” sample navigation
Equipped with an optical colour microscope the user can swiftly navigate to any region of interest with just a single click and keep the image overview of the sample.

Multiple detectors for additional information
Back-Scatter Detector (BSD) yields sharp images and provides chemical contrast information. An optional Secondary Electron Detector (SED) enables surface sensitive imaging.

Low maintenance
The long lifetime, high brightness thermionic source (CeB 6 ) enables extremely stable operation and has a typical operational lifetime of >1500 hours, which is ideal for maximum useability, serviceability and uptime.

Intuitive software
The distribution of elements can be studied using Point analysis, Elemental Mapping and Line Scan. ProSuite software includes applications such as ParticleMetric, PoroMetric, FiberMetric and 3D Roughness Reconstruction.

Accessories

Standard sample holder

The standard sample holder is a compact stage allowing analysis of samples of up to 100 mm x 100 mm. The holder can be extended with 3 types of resin or metallurgical mount inserts.

Sample size

  • 100 mm x 100 mm (up to 36 x 12 mm pin stubs)
  • Max. 65 mm (h)

Eucentric sample holder

This unique  6 axis Eucentric sample holder enables users to quickly load samples within 1 minute and then tilt (up to 90°), lift and rotate them without losing sight of the sample detail.  The real-time 3D visualisation module shows the actual position and orientation at all times while the anti-collision mechanism keeps the sample and SEM safe.

Tensile Sample Holder

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This tensile sample holder enables mechanical testing by measuring the force required to compress or elongate a specimen to breaking point, to  predict how materials will behave in their intended applications. Suitable for observing fiber clusters, polymer films, thin metal films and biological and plant material.
