The Thermo Scientific Quattro ESEM combines all-around performance in imaging and analytics with a unique environmental mode (ESEM), which allows studying samples in their natural state. It is ideal for a wide variety of academic, industrial and government labs that need the versatility and ease-of-use for multiple users of different experience levels and disciplines on a platform that also supports unique in situ experiments. The Quattro ESEM features a field emission gun (FEG), which ensures excellent resolution, while its three vacuum modes (high vacuum, low vacuum, and ESEM) provide the flexibility to accommodate a wide range of samples, of any SEM available, including those that are outgassing or otherwise not vacuum-compatible. The Quattro ESEM is a highly versatile analytical platform, owing to its chamber, which accommodates a range of accessories. Analytical capabilities include energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) with ports for 180-degree dual EDS attachment, electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) coplanar with EDS, and wavelength dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (WDS). The Quattro ESEM supports an optional high-vacuum heating stage (which allows for clean sample observations at high temperature), Thermo Scientific AutoScript 4 Software (a Python-based scripting tool – imaging and stage movements for unattended data acquisition can be programmed) and a new RGB cathodoluminescence (CL) detector (which produces color images, highlighting sample properties not visible with conventional electron or X-ray imaging techniques).
