While optical and conventional (tungsten) scanning electron microscopes (SEM) provide high-resolution imaging for many types of samples, only a field emission SEM can reveal the fine details.

The morphology of nanoparticles, small defects in thin films, insulating materials, or materials sensitive to high-energy electron beams can be adequately studied using a field emission SEM. However, these systems are known to be large, often requiring a dedicated room while also requiring special infrastructure and connections. Additionally, they can be difficult to master.

As a result, many institutions that own a field emission SEM will restrict its use to highly trained personnel. Many research groups, departments or companies outsource their FEG SEM needs to service labs or central facilities to avoid these inconveniences. The Phenom Pharos G2 Desktop FEG-SEM overcomes these challenges.

The FEG-SEM offers floor-model performance on a desktop microscope, with loads of added benefits that make it fast and easy to operate. The desktop Phenom Pharos enables research groups or companies to own their own FEG-SEM and no longer rely on external services. A (solid) table and a regular power outlet are all that are needed to install it. In <30 s after sample loading, full-screen, high-quality images are presented on a wide 24″ monitor at 2 nm resolution and acceleration voltage up to 20 kV. Users can also image soft, beam-sensitive or insulating samples at energy levels as low as 1 kV without the need to apply a coating.

The Phenom Pharos G2 Desktop FEG-SEM also offers multiple fully integrated detectors. A secondary electron detector (SED) is optimal for applications where topography and morphology are important, while the energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) detector provides comprehensive elemental analysis.
