Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM) and Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS)

HASETRI has established an enhanced research facility by providing advance analytical instruments and support for carrying out specialized analysis for samples of several kinds.

Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM) is used for detailed topographic study of any surfaces. It provides surface image from 10X to 10,00,000X magnification.

EDS- Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy detect X-rays with unique energies for characteristic elements which is emitted from the sample surface and this characterizes the elemental composition. It is capable of selective element mapping, line scan, selected area analysis, multipoint analysis, qualitative and quantitative analysis.

FESEM Applications

  • FESEM is applicable for characterizing wide range of samples; ranging from biological to metallurgical, from ceramic to polymeric, everywhere.
  • Surface morphology, topography and texture of materials can be well understood from FESEM image
  • It can be used to differentiate the phases in blends and composites and provides the information regarding the distribution and dispersion of fillers onto the polymeric matrices
  • It plays a major role in failure analysis of products during service
  • It is able to identify contamination or presence of any foreign materials through EDS spectra and elemental mapping.
