Microstructure (Microscopy Evaluations)

SEM Analysis (Scanning Electron Microscopy)

NSL Analytical’s state-of-the-art Scanning Electron Microscopy Lab (also known as the SEM Lab) is capable of providing high magnification-high resolution imaging of samples at magnifications from 15-50,000X.

Our large sample chamber is capable of accommodating samples up to approximately six inches in length by three inches wide.

SEM Testing Lab

An Energy Dispersive Spectrometer (EDS) system attached to the SEM allows NSL Analytical to provide semi-quantitative microanalysis of discrete areas on a sample. Our microscopy capabilities include:

  • Stereomicroscope evaluations at 10-65x magnification
  • Light Microscope evaluations at 50-1000x magnification
  • Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) evaluations at 15-50,000x magnification
  • SEM equipped with Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) detector capable of semi-quantitative micro-chemical analysis and Rutherford Backscattering capabilities.
