SEM/EDS Electron Microscopy Lab Services

SEM/EDS Electron Microscopy Lab Services

In MVA Scientific Consultants’ Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) labs, we provide SEM imaging and analytical services. Our focus is to offer value and high quality data in a timely manner. MVA’s analytical SEM labs provide world-class SEM analysis services for advanced materials, including semiconductors, polymers, nanoparticles and nanotubes, glass and environmental particulate.

Our SEM lab services offer a variety of customized SEM analyses to clients across a wide spectrum of industries. The SEM is uniquely capable of providing high-resolution imaging of a sample surface structure for microanalysis and particle characterization. When coupled with an Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDS) system, SEM provides elemental analysis for most of the periodic table.

Some of the most common SEM testing services that we provide to our clients include determining failure analysis mechanisms, dimensional analysis, process characterization, reverse engineering, and particle identification and size distribution measurement.

SEM/EDS Features

sem microscopy 6490
Low Vacuum SEM
Our Low Vacuum SEM includes a variable pressure system capable of holding wet
and/or non-conductive samples with minimal preparation. The large sample chamber allows the analysis of a wide variety of sample types and sizes.
Field Emission SEM
Field Emission SEM
Our Field Emission SEM provides high-resolution imaging during SEM analysis
at magnifications from 5x to 300,000x.

SEM Analysis Services Lab

The signals generated during SEM analysis produce a two-dimensional image and reveal information about the sample including:

  • Surface morphology and texture
  • Semi-quantitative elemental composition in or on the surface of the sample
  • Foreign substance identification
  • Particle size distribution
