In-situ heating stages allow dynamic microstructural observations and can provide new insights into materials research.

  • Modules are specially engineered for the scanning electron microscope (SEM) environment
  • Custom designs allow quick fitting and removal from SEM stages so normal SEM use can be resumed quickly
  • Designed to be compatible with geometrical requirements of different detectors including electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) for dynamic observations
Murano heating stage
  • Murano stage available for heating to 950 °C for EBSD applications and secondary electron detector (SED) imaging
  • Study real-time crystallization and phase transformations at elevated temperatures up to 950 °C 
  • Proprietary design enables offline specimen mounting and storage
  • Bulk specimen support designed specifically to operate within EBSD/focused ion beam (FIB)/SED geometry constraints
  • Water cooling and heat protective shielding ensure maximum protection at elevated temperatures
  • Additional bias control to assist with imaging at elevated temperatures
