Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM)

Since the introduction of electron microscopes in the 1930s, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) has developed into a critical tool within numerous different research fields, spanning areas from materials science, to forensics, to industrial manufacturing, and even to the life sciences. SEM becomes a necessary tool whenever microscopic information about the surface or near-surface region of a specimen is needed. This is the reason why the method finds applications in nearly every branch of science, technology and industry. Floor model SEMs provide the flexibility and versatility to meet a wide range of academic and industrial needs - support for large and heavy samples, a very broad range of accessories, excellent imaging quality for the most challenging materials or the smallest details, and dynamic experimentation. Thermo Fisher Scientific is dedicated to designing analytical SEMs that are ideally suited for user's specific needs, offering a range of versatile tools - everything from the easy-to-use Thermo Scientific Phenom Desktop SEMs to powerhouse instruments capable of unparalleled resolution and contrast like the Thermo Scientific Verios SEM.
