Phenom XL G2
Desktop SEM for large samples, with automation
The Thermo Scientific Phenom XL G2 has the largest chamber in a desktop SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope), for samples up to 100mm x 100mm.
- Automated features – useful for quality and process control.
- Process large quantities of samples without human error.
- Full-screen images.
- Average time-to image: 60 seconds.
- Long-life, low maintenance CeB6 electron source.
- Small footprint to fit into the lab easily.
Use the Phenom Programming Interface (PPI) to control the Phenom XL G2, using Python scripting to handle common tasks. You can automatically analyse:
- Large SEM images
Long-Life Electron Source
The cerium hexaboride (CeB₆) electron source has several advantages compared to tungsten:
- High brightness making it easier to obtain high quality, detailed images.
- Long lifetime with less scheduled maintenance.
Eucentric Sample Holder
Tilting and rotating the sample can give you new insights. An optional eucentric sample holder is available to tilt and rotate the sample while maintaining position and focus.
An optional energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) detector is available for the Phenom XL G2 desktop SEM, for additional material insights and element identification using X-ray analysis, without switching to a different system. This adds useful compositional information to electron microscope images, covering almost all elements on the periodic table from Boron to Americium.
This uses a dedicated software package with a user-friendly step-by-step process to guide you through acquisition. Smart algorithms and automated peak analysis identify element automatically, with manual adjustments possible at any time.
