DigiScan II™ - Definitive Performance, Digital Beam Control & Image Processing
DigiScan II™ is Gatan's 2nd generation digital beam control and image processing system designed especially for providing photographic quality digital images, as well as enhancing advanced scanning electron beam applications.
DigiScan II works in Gatan's industry leading DigitalMicrograph™ software environment and provides the backbone of advanced EM techniques from Gatan.
DigiScan II's impressive specifications can extend the performance of all SEMs. With greater flexibility of image acquisition and signal to noise differentiation, DigiScan II can transform an older analogue microscope, even exceed the performance of modern SEM framestores.
With DigiScan II, high pixel density images can be acquired. Poster sized images can provide higher spatial resolution at lower SEM magnification. Interesting areas can be zoomed into as a post processing step without introducing pixellation.
Flexible pixel density and dwell times, high bit depth acquisition and simultaneous acquisition of multiple inputs are key to obtaining quality micro-analytical results. DigiScan II is included in MonoCL3+, ChromaCL, Spectrum Imaging and SmartEBIC products, and optional on other CL, cryo-transfer, hot stages and mechanical testing products.
Configured for microscope's own external scan control input. One 3rd party beam control system can additionally be routed through DigiScan to allow sharing of a single external scan control input.
Continuous mode (search or preview) or single shot mode (record). Configurable persistence and integrate multiple frame modes. Digital zoom function allows increased magnification without altering SEM magnification. Waveform monitor, real-time image rotation, beam control. Area and linescan spectrum imaging functionality for advanced spectroscopic techniques.
Up to 4 analogue and 4 pulse inputs simultaneously. Controlled by software license and cabling.
User choice of pixel image size in X and Y dimensions, up to 8192 wide x 8192 high, and recorded at 1, 2, or 4 bytes per pixel. Maximum pixel resolution may depend on microscope and environment.
User choice of pixel dwell time from 400 nsec to 400 msec per pixel.
