The Nova NANO SEM 600 is a high-resolution scanning electron microscope equippend with SED, BSED and STEM detectors. In STEM mdoe, the resolution can be as low as 1 nanometre. The microscope can also work in low vacuum conditions and it is equipped with both electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) detector for 2D crystallographic investigations and an energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer (EDS) for chemical characterization.
