Instrument Description

The Zeiss Ultra 55 is a high resolution SEM. It is equipped with several detectors; the E-T detector collects SE2 electrons and provide topographical information, the in-lens detector collects SE1 electrons and provide high resolution surface information, the EsB detector (which is an in lens detector) collects BS electrons at low voltages thus provide composition contrast for all samples including nonconductive or beam sensitive samples, the STEM detector collects transmitted electrons of thin samples (up to 100nm) at 30kV. Furthermore, the Ultra 55 is equipped with a cryo stage for cryo imaging of biological samples and synthetic soft materials.
