Robust

With excellent stability and a small footprint the architecture of the NANOS ensures it can be used in non-laboratory environments.

Ease of use

In BASIC mode the NANOS will produce results in a short period of time, regardless of experience. ADVANCED mode provides further functionality for detailed analysis.

Cost of ownership

The NANOS has been engineered to keep the cost of ownership lower than any benchtop SEM currently available.

Eucentric stage

The Eucentric Stage of the NANOS is truly the only one of its kind. It comes standard with the NANOS. The motorized XY movements can be controlled via the User Interface. Tilting the specimen while in SEM mode can be done by manually turning the stage. Thanks to the eucentric design, the sample stays in focus without the need for intermediate changes in SEM settings. The User Interface indicates the exact tilt angle. Samples can be tilted up to angles of 55 ̊.

Elemental analysis

The NANOS is equipped with a fully integrated Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX) Silicon Drift Detector (SDD). Via the User Interface operator can select EDX Point Analysis or activate Elemental Mapping.

Electron Detectors

The NANOS comes with both a Secondary Electron Detector (SED) and a Back Scattered Electron Detector (BSD) as standard. The BSD is a 4-quadrant detector with fully controllable independent segments. By utilizing the segments in different combinations, it provides compositional or topographical detail from the sample, as well as images with a ‘shading-effect’ by highlighting the surface from multiple directions.
