The new high-tech device for the Materials Engineering Department - scanning electron microscope
The microscope is equipped with 9 detectors to study different types of interactions between the
electron beam and observed samples. It will be used to develop new ultrafine-grained materials and
observe changes of materials exposed to the high energy plasma.
Microscope was delivered by Thermo Fisher Scientific company, a world leader in electron
microscopy. Energy-dispersive X-Ray spectroscopy analyser of the local chemical composition (EDS
technology) Ultim Max was delivered by Oxford Instruments. The microscope was engineered,
manufactured and tested in Brno, Czechia.
We thank Thermo Fisher Scientific and Oxford Instruments for successful delivery and great
cooperation. Financial support provided by Czech Academy of Sciences is also gratefully
