Dual Beam FIB-SEM: Helios

Helios Nanolab G3 CX


The Helios Nanolab combines the high spatial resolution afforded by an SEM with high precision milling and Pt deposition with a Ga ion beam. With the use of the Easylift nanomanipulator and AutoTEM4 software, thin cross sections of materials can be prepared for high resolution imaging and chemical mapping in the Osiris TEM/STEM. The Nanobuilder software allows users to create complex milling and patterning procedures that can performed un-attended. The addition of the Quorum PP3010 enables cryo-SEM and cryo-FIB-SEM imaging of soft, fully hydrated, beam sensitive materials and biological samples.
