Analytical Transmission Scanning Electron Microscopy: Extending the Capabilities of a Conventional SEM Using an Off-the-Shelf Transmission Detector



Jason D. Holm, Robert R. Keller


This work demonstrates how a modular transmission detector can be used to extend the analytical capabilities of a conventional SEM. By implementing a new sample holder and aperture system, we show that high angle and other dark field imaging techniques are compatible with one particular modular transmission detector, thereby enabling atomic number contrast.
