SEM-EDS analysis laboratory

What is Scanning Electron Microscopy EDS (SEM-EDS) ?

SEM-EDS Scanning Electron Microscopy is a laboratory microscopic analysis technique using a Field Emission Gun (FEG). This technique produces very high-resolution images of the surface of a sample (magnification on the order of *1000000). It is used to study the chemical composition and morphology of solid materials. The FILAB laboratory specializes in SEM-EDS expertise.

SEM-EDS expertise: what are we talking about ?

The FILAB laboratory is equipped with not one, but 2 SEMs! Both are additionally coupled with EDS probes for extremely precise analysis of your materials. These SEM-EDS techniques, with columnar signal detection 20 times more intense than that of a conventional Scanning Electron Microscope, enable the FILAB laboratory to carry out high value-added analyses. In fact, we obtain sharp images for non-destructive, accurate and much faster investigative observations and analyses.

When does FILAB use the SEM-EDS technique ?

Today, FILAB is one of the first laboratories in France to equip itself with 2 Zeiss SEM-EDS techniques, model GEMINI SEM. This SEM microscopic analysis tool is particularly powerful and efficient for rapid diagnostics (pollution, inclusion…) or more complex appraisals.

In the FILAB laboratory, SEM-EDS is the primary diagnostic tool. That’s why we’ve chosen to include :

  • A FEG-SEM coupled with an EDS probe for materials failure assessment (metals, polymers, ceramics, glass...) and R&D.

  • A Tungsten SEM coupled with an EDS probe for identifying particles, contaminants, deposits and pollution.
