Materials science is an interdisciplinary field involving the diverse properties of matter and their applications in science and engineering. Analyzing materials and exploiting their properties is one of the big challenges in this field, along with understanding materials fundamentally so new materials with the desired properties can be created.
As the physical and chemical properties of the material surfaces play an important role in many applications, the Phenom desktop scanning electron microscopes focus on surface- and interface-related processes and their investigation.
The Phenom SEM has proven to be a reliable tool for observing and analyzing surfaces, compounds and particles. It can be used for quality insurance during production to element analysis of compounds after processing and even to the analysis of particle shapes.
