Electron Microscopy Applications

Electron Microscopes (EM) use a beam of accelerated electrons in order to generate an image, the electrons used having a shorter wavelength than that of visible or UV light used in optical light microscopes. The very nature of the electron allows for higher magnification and better resolution. Electron microscopes fall into two basic categories – transmission electron microscopes (TEM) and scanning electron microscopes (SEM). Due to their powerful resolution and the possibility of magnification, they have found application in material characterization, semiconductor production and life science.
– Various electron microscopy techniques used in material characterization have been proven in different fields of material research such as: fundamental research on metals, quality control and failure analysis, battery, polymer and geological research, oil and gas, nanoparticles, forensics, catalysis research, fibers and filters, automotive materials testing, as well as 2D materials research.
– EM methods in life sciences including large volume analysis, cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), cryo-tomography and single particle analysis have found their application in structural biology, infectious disease, drug discovery, plant biology, pathology and cancer research.
– Consistent improvements in performance and energy efficiency of both semiconductor and microelectronic devices are enabled with EM, which include semiconductoer pathfinding and development, yield ramp and metrology, failure analysis, physical and chemical characterization, ESD qualification as well as power semiconductor device analysis.
