Phenom XL Desktop SEM for Large Samples

Be the first to review this product

Product Code: PW-100-018
Manufacturer: Thermo Fisher Scientific

The Phenom XL Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) pushes the boundaries of compact desktop SEM performance. It features the proven ease-of-use and fast time-to-image of any Phenom system. Next to this, it is equipped with a chamber that allows analysis of large samples up to 100mm x 100mm. The XL allows for in-situ testing with a tensile and compression holder up to 150N or 1000N. Optional eucentric and compucentric stage and vibration isolation platform only for the XL.

The Phenom XL has the largest sample stage of any tabletop SEM while maintaining all of the advantages of the original Phenom platform. The Phenom XL has a Large sample chamber which can accomidate samples up to 100mm by 100mm by 65mm. 

  • Benchtop SEM - Small footprint
  • Fast vent/load cycle for high throughput
  • Motorized XY stage
  • Color optical camera for single-click navigation
  • Elemental analysis with EDS option
  • Secondary electron detector option
  • No infrastructure needed
  • All-in-one imaging and analysis system (BSE, SE -optional and EDS)
  • Scan area up to 100 mm x 100 mm
  • Elemental analysis is as easy as imaging, with fully integrated EDS
  • Variable vacuum (high, medium & low) modes for all samples types. Low Vac eliminates the need for sputter coating.
  • Permanent optical overview for swift navigation to any region on the sample
  • Multiple acceleration voltages. Pre-set 5, 10 & 15 kV and an adjustable range between 4.8 and 20.5kV.

The Phenom Application System and Pro Suite are available for any Phenom desktop SEM. The Phenom Application System can be connected directly via local a network or the Internet, enabling network storage and remote system control.
