Merlin series features in-situ 3D surface reconstruction
Carl Zeiss has introduced an extension of its Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope platform MERLIN.
The company now offers the MERLIN Compact, MERLIN VP Compact and MERLIN systems which can be configured individually.
The Plug-and-Play feature allows the customer to add and change detectors for tasks ranging from simple image capture to extensive material analysis.
Other features include:
- A large frame store of 32k x 24k pixels allows imaging of very large areas
- In-situ 3D surface reconstruction and calculation of 3D data from 2D data
- The new in-lens Duo detector offers both high resolution imaging and extensive materials information
- MERLIN VP Compact allows for high-resolution imaging even of non-conductive samples without coating
With the integration of an ultramicrotome directly into the vacuum chamber, automated serial blockface imaging of embedded samples (e.g. cells or tissue) is possible.
As a result, biological samples can be imaged three-dimensionally in voxels.
The Axio Lab.A1 is designed for use in polarisation microscopy of thin geological and mineralogical specimen.
Carl Zeiss has introduced the first multi-ion-beam tool based on Gas Field Ion Source (GFIS) technology.
Users can trade in their current Zeiss systems for credit towards a 7-series laser scanning, spectral confocal device.
Multiphoton confocal microscopes from Carl Zeiss now permit the simultaneous use of two NLO lasers.
