Quanta™ 650 FEG
Discover the “any sample, all data” solution for
ultimate versatility and high resolution SEM
Addressing the need to investigate a wide variety of materials and characterize structure
and composition, the FEI Quanta FEG provides unmatched flexibility to increase both
performance and versatility to handle the challenges of today’s wide ranging research
needs. View any sample and get all the data: surface images and compositional
images can be combined with accessories for determining material properties and
elemental composition.
Today’s research extends beyond simple metals and coated samples and the Quanta
series can comfortably handle challenges to produce top quality images and analysis.
The Quanta 50 series from FEI is the advanced, flexible solution for current and future
research applications. Featuring three imaging modes – high vacuum, low vacuum
and ESEMTM, it accommodates the widest range of samples of any SEM system. These
instruments are engineered to provide maximum data – imaging and microanalysis–
from all specimens, with or without preparation. Characterization of both traditional
Key benefits
• Only high resolution FEG-SEM with ESEM
• Characterize conductive and non-conductive
samples with SE and BSE imaging possible in
every mode of operation
• Minimize the amount of sample preparation, low
vacuum and ESEM capability enables charge-free
imaging and analysis of non-conductive and/or
hydrated specimens
• Increase analytical capabilities by enabling EDS
and EBSD analysis on conductive and nonconductive samples in high and low vacuum
thanks to Quanta’s patented through-the-lens
pumping. Stable high current FEG (up to 200 nA)
enable fast, accurate analysis
• Perform dynamic in situ analysis of diverse
samples in their natural state above or below
ambient temperatures from - 165 °C to 1500 °C
with specialized in situ stages
• Enable surface imaging with optional beam
deceleration mode and detectors optimized to
get surface and compositional information from
conductive samples
• Easy to use, intuitive software makes highly
effective operation possible for novice users
samples from metals, fractures and polished sections, to non-conductive soft materials.
The Quanta 50 series is the third generation Quanta system built on the success of
previous generations of ESEM Schottky FEG. This series has an easy-to-use and flexible
user interface with functions to maximize productivity and allow all the data to be
collected. Designed by microscopists for microscopists, this instrument series is truly
above and beyond ‘easy to use’. Navigation features include auto navigation montage,
double-click stage-movements, drag-to-zoom and other useful features incorporated
as standard. SmartSCANTM and drift compensated frame integration (DCFI) bring new
scanning strategy to reduce noise and provide better data. Additional new options such
as beam deceleration provide better resolution and contrast, while sensitive detection
options offer a sensitive angular-filtered Directional Backscatter (DBS) and an in-column
detector sensitivity to improve low kV performance. Nav-CamTM color image navigation
and new retractable detectors provide even greater flexibility to the Quanta FEG series.
Better data. More flexibility. Higher efficiency. General purpose FEG ESEM is now
within your reach.
