FEI Company Introduces NOVA Nano 30 Series
HILLSBORO, OR | Posted on August 6th, 2007
FEI (Nasdaq: FEIC) today introduced its latest and most powerful scanning electron microscope (SEM), the Nova NanoSEM™ 30 series. This high-end, versatile field emission SEM series features new low kV performance for enhanced surface characterization, high current for compositional analysis capabilities and the world's only high-resolution operation in low vacuum to characterize uncoated and even insulating samples.
The advanced performance of the Nova NanoSEM 30 series enables the characterization and analysis of a large range of samples, including demanding ones such as nanoparticles, insulating substrates such as glass or polymers, porous materials, metals and composites.
Beyond its new imaging and analytical performance, the NOVA NanoSEM 30 series also provides researchers with novel prototyping capabilities based on electron beam lithography, electron beam induced deposition and in-situ experimentation for manipulation and testing.
The three instruments of the Nova NanoSEM 30 Series owe their superior performance to the newly introduced Schottky gun and beam deceleration technologies. The 230 and 430 systems feature 50 x 50 mm and 100 x 100 mm 5-axis motorized stages, respectively. The 630 system is equipped with a 5-axis high precision and stability 150 x 150 mm piezo stage.
"The NOVA NanoSEM 30 Series builds on FEI's expertise in field emission scanning electron microscopy and low vacuum SEM technology and brings unprecedented capabilities to researchers in the nanotechnology space, delivering best performance in characterization and prototyping tasks for a wide variety of nanomaterials and devices," said Dominique Hubert, vice president of FEI's NanoResearch division. "Joining the world's most powerful S/TEM, the Titan™, and the world's smallest and easiest-to- use tabletop SEM, the Phenom™, the NOVA NanoSEM 30 Series is an important addition to our innovative range of customer offerings."
Visitors to the Microscopy and Microanalysis Conference this week can see the new NOVA NanoSEM 630 at FEI's exhibit (Booth 414) at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center. Complete information on FEI's activities at the conference can be found at www.fei.com/mm07.
