  Cryo SEM
Short nameCryo SEM
Full nameJEOL 6330 Cryo Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM)

This JEOL FESEM can be used to make topographical images of the surface of objects, up to a resolution of about 1.5 nm.
It can be employed either in conventional SEM mode or as cryo-SEM.  In conventional use, the material needs to be naturally conductive or it has to be precoated with a thin layer of metal (use SEM coaters). In cryo-mode, the material is first fixed with nitrogen slush and transposed to the cryo-chamber. To observe inner structures, the frozen material can be cleaved, sublimated and coated with gold-palladium inside the vacuum cryo chamber.
