SEM imaging

In SEM imaging, several images with varying magnifications are taken to get a good representative view of the sample surface. The resolution is higher than in traditional microscopy. Read more

SEM-EDX imaging of surfaces

Imaging of the sample using a scanning electron microscope (SEM) with energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX or EDS). In a typical measurement, several images are taken with varying magnifications to get a good overall view of the sample surface. Read more

AFM surface roughness measurement

In this analysis, the surface roughness value (RMS) of the sample is determined with atomic force microscopy (AFM). The price includes three measurement points from the sample. The measurement area is 5 x 5 micrometers, if not agreed otherwise. In … Read more
