Zeiss Crossbeam 540


The Zeiss Crossbeam 540 is a state of the art FIB/SEM system featuring the Zeiss Capella FIB column and Gemini II SEM column. Funded by an EPSRC grant, the instrument is primed for both nanofabrication and analytical work. For the latter, the system is fitted with the Oxford Instruments XMaxN 150 EDX detector and Nordlys Max EBSD system. This will give the ability to acquire 3-dimensional datasets containing chemical and crystallographic data.

The system is also equippred for nanofabrication and serial cross sectional imaging using the advanced Zeiss Atlas 5 imaging and patterning engine, which can pattern complex 3D shapes and be used to create 3D image stacks with signals from multiple detectors.
