2009 - Field Emission Gun Scanning Electron Microscope (FEG SEM)

Actlabs is proud to be the first and only organization within North America to have a Field Emission Gun Scanning Electron Microscope (FEG SEM)-FEI Quanta 650 with two EDX detectors and MLA quantitation software.  The FEG SEM carries many advantages compared to that of a traditional SEM.  With the fine-point electron source delivered by the Field Emission Gun, the instrument provides higher resolution (sub micron)imaging than a traditional W-filament SEM.Accurate automated quantitation of mineralogy is a cornerstone of our new Geometallurgy Department.  This instrument is also currently being used to provide support for other nanotechnology applications for materials characterization, environmental mineralogy, forensic mineralogy, life sciences and aerosol and dust particulates.
