SEM-FEG Microscopy

Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) is a powerful technique used to observe the surface of samples. It has an ultra-high level of detail right down to nanometer scale. An SEM-FEG (field emission gun) microscope can be operated at low voltage.

SEM-FEG is thus extremely well suited for examining most organic materials with a low fusion temperature.

Novitom specialises in the characterisation of nanoparticles, organic coatings, and observing hair or skin surfaces.
