JSM-IT510 InTouchScope™ Scanning Electron Microscope

Easy to acquire data for all specimen types

Scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) are indispensable tools not only for research but also for quality assurance and manufacturing sites.
At those scenes, the same observation processes need to be performed repeatedly and there has been a need to improve the efficiency of the process.

With the JSM-IT510, the newly added Simple SEM function allows users to "leave the manual repetitive operation to it", required for SEM observation, making SEM observation more efficient and easier.

Simple SEM

Just select the target field

Simple SEM supports daily routine work.

  • Specimen: Electronic device
  • Accelerating voltage: 15 kV, (Top) Magnification: ×50 (Bottom) ×1,000, Signal: BE

Magnify the optical image *1, transition to SEM image

The Zeromag function simplifies navigation providing a seamless transition from the optical to SEM image.
The SEM, optical image and holder graphic are all linked for a global view of analysis locations.
*1 Stage Navigation System (SNS) is needed to display the optical image.

Live Analysis / Live Map*2

Embedded EDS for Real-Time elemental composition during observation

Live Analysis is a function which displays the EDS spectrum or element maps in Real-Time during image observation. This function can support searching and provide an alert for target elements.
* Live Analysis is a standard for A (Analysis) / LA (Low Vacuum & Analysis).

Variety of advanced options

Low-vacuum Hybrid Secondary Electron Detector (LHSED)*

This new detector collects both electron and photon signals providing an image with high S/N and enhanced topographic information.
* LHSED is an option. And LV (Low Vacuum) or L A (Low Vacuum & Analysis) is also required.
