Carl-Zeiss Make Field-Emission Scanning Electron Microscope
About Instrument and its applications-
This center at IIT Roorkee has the Carl Zeiss Ultra Plus from Carl Zeiss. It is the advanced, flexible solution for current and future diagnostics applications. It has three imaging modes – high-vacuum, low-vacuum and E-SEM. It accommodates the widest range of samples of any SEM system. This facility is utilized by IIT Roorkee students as well as other university students and R&D companies and industries in the country. We have special EBSD attachment with this machine which is beneficial in studying the texture analysis of the samples. It is engineered to provide maximum data – imaging and microanalysis – from all specimens, with or without preparation.
