Home > Press > 1,500th GEMINIŽ Scanning Electron Microscope Installed at Dresden University of Technology

Abstract:
Carl Zeiss SMT today officially put into service the 1,500th GEMINIŽ-class scanning electron microscope. The customer is the "Center for Non-Destructive Nano Evaluation nanoevaŽ" in Dresden, a joint facility of the Electronics Packaging Laboratory (German abbreviation: IAVT) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Non-Destructive Testing (IZFP-D) through its Dresden-based department. One of the key applications for which nanoevaŽ will be using the electron microscope is to carry out research on the packaging of electronic and microtechnical modules for system integration. The mix of materials this involves, ranging from silicon to plastics, requires the development of tailor-made methods of analysis.

1,500th GEMINIŽ Scanning Electron Microscope Installed at Dresden University of Technology

DRESDEN, Germany and OBERKOCHEN, Germany | Posted on January 30th, 2009

The system, which was specifically configured for nanoevaŽ, offers a special combination that incorporates high-resolution imaging of sample details plus a multitude of analysis options, such as chemical element analysis and size and distance measurements with levels of accuracy to the order of millionths of a millimeter. The Head of Electron Microscopy Product Management at Carl Zeiss, Dr. Thomas Albrecht, emphasizes some of the key benefits: "1,500 GEMINIŽ-class scanning electron microscopes not only reflect just how much confidence customers have in this technology and its applications, but also offer an opportunity to link up with a whole host of users worldwide and exchange experiences on how to put these tools to optimum use. Obviously, this is an area where we also incorporate the many years of experience accrued by our application specialists. We work towards the goal of extracting as much information as possible from samples while demonstrating to our customers that we are a partner they can trust."

Professor Klaus-Jürgen Wolter from the IAVT at Dresden University of Technology explains further: "Cutting-edge research in the field of microtechnologies and nanotechnologies requires high-performance tools to analyze and visualize samples. The GEMINIŽ scanning electron microscope from Carl Zeiss is the ideal supplement to our range of analysis tools. We now have the kind of abundant resources that allow us to make great headway with both our own work and with projects for our clients. It has also given a further productivity boost to the bridge between industrial development and the realms of research and teaching."


GEMINIŽ Technology
The GEMINIŽ technology for scanning electron microscopes (SEM) has been in use since 1994, during which time numerous solutions and applications have been patented for Carl Zeiss. As well as providing high-detail resolution, the special design of the electron beam column offers further capabilities such as the analysis of magnetic samples, a task that cannot be satisfactorily undertaken using other types of SEM. To date, 1,500 systems using this technology have been installed worldwide in research, teaching and industry environments to help users explore the "nano cosmos". The advantages of GEMINIŽ technology have yielded particular benefits in the fields of materials research, life sciences, semiconductor technology and nanotechnologies.
