JEOL JSM-IT800 Schottky Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope

The JSM-IT800, Schottky Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope with a JEOL Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer(EDS) as standard, is fully integrated with a new GUI "SEM Center", enabling Nonstop acquisition of data from observation to elemental analysis.
Advanced and integrated high peroformance and ease-of-use has improved the work efficiency by more than 50%, making the daily measurement high-throughput.


Hybrid Lens Version(HL)/Super Hybrid Lens Version(SHL)

Based on a combination of the electrostatic and electromagnetic-field lens, two types of objective lens versions are available. The different configurations allow for a wider variety of needs of users to be met, achieving high spatial resolution imaging and analysis of a broad range of samples, from magnetic materials to insulators, while maintaining the same features of the JSM-IT800.


Detection System in JSM-IT800〈SHL〉

Specimen: section of IC-chip (surface-ethcing, osmium coating), Accelerating voltage: 5.0 kV (without BD mode), Observation mode: SHL, Detector: UHD,UED (BSE mode)
The SE image can be obtained by using the UHD; and the BSE image can be obtained by using the UED.

Specimen: Cellulose Nanofiber (CNF), Accelerating voltage: 0.2 kV, Observation mode: BD, Detector: UHD+UED (signal addition)

Even the specimen is an organic fiber, the observation is also feasible through controlling the beam damage on the organic fiber.


EDS Mapping with JSM-IT800

In addition to BED (normal BSE detector), SBED (scintillator BSE detector) and VBED (versatile BSE detector) are also available to install.  

SBED(Scintillator BSE Detector)

The responsibility and sensitivity of the detector are enhanced when substituting semiconductor elements with scintillator in the detector.

  • Specimen: ultra thin section of mouse kidney (contrast reversion)
    Accelerating voltage: 5.0 kV
    Scan speed: 0.04 μsec/pixel (5120×3840 )

    Observe the biological ultra thin
    section through high speed scanning

  • Specimen: toner
    Accelerating voltage: 1.5 kV

    Obtain the compositional image
    at low accelerating voltage

  • Specimen: steel plate (for observing dislocation)
    Accelerating voltage: 25.0 kV

    Obtain the dislocation image at high
    accelerating voltage

VBED(Versatile BSE Detector)

The semiconductor detection elements are divided into 5 sections. According to the purpose of observation, the signals are selectively obtained from different detection area of these 5 sections.

Angle selection

  • Specimen: phosphor, Accelerating voltage: 3.0 kV

According to the different detection angles of BSE, the compositional information is principally obtained through the inside detecting
elements of VBED and the topographic information is principally obtained through the outside detecting elements. In addition, it is
remarkable that the phosphors under the Al film are bright when using the inside elements of detector to observe .

3-dimensional images can be reconstructed by using these 2-dimensional images obtained from 4 directions.

High spatial resolution EDS maps

Even the size of Ag nanoparticles is small to tens of nanometers, the elemental mapping also can make them visible.
