SEM performance with Thermal Field Emission (TFE) capabilities is greatly improved. As a result a Schottky field emission source provides improved resolution with higher beam current, ability to image at low beam energy and longer source lifetime (typically 8,000hrs).
The C>MORE upgrade package is low on maintenance and big on impact. Schottky field emitters have a longer lifespan than Tungsten (W) based cathodes and can last in excess of 8000 hours. With the C>MORE upgrade Schottky emitter exchange are straight-forward and simple.
The C>MORE upgrade is a cost-effective solution, delivering high nano-analytical performance without the expense of a new instrument. The upgrade can be installed on-site with the support of a competent and experienced engineer and can also be provided by YPS.
The C>MORE conversion can be applied to various type of SEMs i.e. Tungsten, LaB6 and now Schottky Thermal Field Emission (please contact us to discuss specific benefits of C>MORE upgrade for SFEG type). A pre-assessment of the system to ensure good working condition of key aspects of the SEM is required.
Based on YPS's "pre-aligned" emitter module, replacement emitters are pre-aligned in our factory and a competent engineer can exchange the emitter without specialist expertise. All emitters are guaranteed for one year of normal operation.
