Today, Carl Zeiss launches
SIGMA VP, which adds variable pressure technology to the range of SIGMA field
emission scanning electron microscopes (FE-SEM). Featuring the Carl Zeiss GEMINI®
column, proven VP technology and a design with analytical accessories in mind,
the SIGMA VP provides a comprehensive analytical solution for a constantly growing
diversity of applications.
The chamber includes the provision for all WDS variants as well as a geometry
suitable for coplanar EDS and EBSD analysis. The SIGMA VP is compatible with
a wealth of accessories including the Carl Zeiss BSD and VPSE G3 detectors,
which provide exceptional imaging of non-conducting specimens.
The customer benefits of the SIGMA VP are a combination of outstanding flexibility
and unrivalled ease of use with respect to both image acquisition and analytical
applications. System control by means of SmartSEM®, the Carl Zeiss software
package known for its intuitive interface, and the GEMINI column with user-friendly
operation allow for excellent imaging by novices and experts alike.
With this launch Carl Zeiss further underlines its slogan: Maximum information
– maximum insight.
