• Conventional SEM

    In conventional SEM operation, SEM imaging and elemental analysis were separated (not seamless).

  • JCM-7000

    With "Zeromag", the JCM-7000 enables seamless operation from optical to SEM imaging. Also with "Live Analysis", elemental analysis by EDS can be made during SEM image observation.

Comparison with OM

Accelerate your insight beyond an Optical Microscope

  • Contaminant analysis
  • Quality control
  • Contaminant analysis

    Easy to detect foreign material
    Easy to identify elemental composition

    【Example】Analysis of black foreign material adhered on surface of food product

    • OM image

      OM observation shows a black powder on specimen surface.

    • SEM Image(Backscattered electron compositional image)

      ZOOM

      SEM image from the same field of view (FOV) shows particles with different contrast indicating different compositions.

      Enlarging the area of interest accesses instant live EDS analysis with main elements identified.

  • Quality control

    Observe detailed surface structures with high resolution and large depth of field not possible with OM imaging.

    【Example】Analysis of black foreign material adhered on surface of food product

    • OM image

      In OM image, it is difficult to see the distribution of the lubricant on the granule surface and quality of its adhesion.

    • SEM Image(Backscattered electron compositional image)

      ZOOM

      The superior depth of focus provided withSEM imaging over OM imaging along with the compositional contrast provided withthe backscattered electron detectoclearlyshows the distribution of the lubricant on the surface of the granule.

    • SEM Image(Backscattered electron compositional image)

      Condition of the lubricant's adhesion can be observed with higher magnification.

Features and Applications

Functions that enable anyone to perform SEM/EDS operations

  • Zeromag & Low-Vacuum mode
  • Live! Live! Live!
  • SMILE VIEWTM Lab
  • Zeromag

    Zoom the optical image to automatically switch to a SEM image!

    Low-Vacuum mode

    Viewing is simple with no pre-treatment needed for easily-charged samples.

    Specimen: Salt

  • Live Analysis

    eliminates the need to consider SEM observation and EDS analysis as separate operations. When Live Map is selected, you can confirm the distribution of elements in the observed area in real-time.

    • Screening while performing observation with Live Analysis

    • Quickly check the element distribution with Live Map

    • Live 3D

      The new high-sensitivity 4-segmented backscattered electron detector enables 2-pane viewing of a SEM image and a 3D image using Live 3D function. In addition to instantaneous shape determination for samples with complex topographies, depth information can also be acquired.

  • SMILE VIEWTM Lab

    All data can be managed from SMILE VIEWTM Lab Data management screen.
    Review and re-analysis of previously-acquired data, and creation of reports can be performed easily.

    • Batch creation of reports
