Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)

Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)

Image formation in an SEM is accomplished through collection of the secondary electrons / back scattered electrons generated due to interaction of an electron beam with the material of the specimens. The characteristic X-rays generated from the specimens during this interaction are used for elemental analysis.
