Phenom Pharos G2
The world’s first desktop FEG-SEM (Field Emission SEM) for ultimate resolution
The Thermo Scientific Phenom Pharos is a desktop SEM (Scanning Elecron Microscope) with an Field Emission (FEG) source for crisp, high-brightness images. It’s much easier to use and install than a typical FEG-SEM, making the benefits of an FEG source accessible to everyone.
Fast and Easy to Use
The Phenom Pharos Desktop SEM is designed to make FEG-SEM accessible to everyone, delivering crisp, high-brightness images.
The installation process is straightforward, requiring just a solid table and a regular power supply. The UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) is integrated, protecting the system from any power failures. Initialisation starts automatically when the power’s switched on.
After loading a sample, an optical image is available immediately for navgation. When you switch to SEM mode, an image appears in 30 seconds. The new interface on the G2 model displays a full-screen, highly detailed 24″ image.
Training takes less than an hour. Master students, visitors or researchers not trained on high-end FEG SEMs can easily acquire high quality images with the Phenom Pharos.
With a voltage range down to 1 kV you can image soft, insulating and beam-sensitive samples, such as polymers. There’s no need to apply any special coatings or prepare the samples.
2.0 nm Resolution
The Phenom Pharos G2 also offers a resolution of 2.0 nm at 20 kV. This reveals features that may be missed by other tabletop or tungsten SEMs, such the shape of nanoparticles or imperfections in coatings.
- EDS (Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) – Elemental information for compositional context.
- 3D EDS Tomography – 3D characterisation with compositional data for full chemical and structural information.
- Atomic-scale EDS – Differentiate the elemental identity of individual atoms and examine their organisation.
- High Temperature Imaging – Study materials in real-world conditions as they melt, recrystallise, deform or react.
- In-situ – Watch micro-structural changes in real time during heating, cooling, and wetting to study dynamic processes eg recrystallisation, grain growth or phase transformation.
- Multi-scale analysis – Correlate various imaging modalities for larger context as well as high resolution studies.
