Hitachi S-5500 SEM/STEM

Contact: Dr. Andrei Dolocan
Location: EER 0.752

Equipment Type:

Electron Microscopy

Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM)

Information the Equipment Can Provide

Hitachi S-5500 SEM provides sub-nanometer resolution and is also capable of imaging in scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) mode. The bright field (BF) and dark field (DF) Duo-STEM detector allows simultaneous observation of BF and DF STEM images. The equipped energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) can probe the chemical composition of materials at nanometer scale.

Fees and Policies

  • UT Users: $33/hour
  • Higher Education/State Agencies: $66/hour
  • Corporate/External Users: $66/hour

To become a new user of this facility, please read the Instrument Reservation Information page. If you are already a user you can make a reservation in FBS.

Training Requirements:

Three sessions are required that are 2 hours each.

The first session will be regarding basic operations and functions of the SEM using TMI reference materials. The second session will address imaging using user’s samples. The third session will be on SEM imaging combined with EDS and/or backscattered electron detector.
