What is Scanning Electron Microscopy?
Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) is a tool which generates images of a sample by scanning the surface with a concentrated beam of electrons. The images created provide surface topography and composition information for a wide range of materials. Scanning Electron Microscopy, SEM, is an essential instrument for applications including material science, biotechnology & nanotechnology.
Lambda Photometrics Ltd, a leading equipment supplier in the UK and Ireland serving science and engineering, have announced it has completed a distribution partnership agreement with EmCrafts Co Ltd, South Korea’s leading Scanning Electron Microscope manufacturer.
Commenting on the agreement Lambda Photometrics Managing Director, Ian Ramsay, said: “We welcome EmCrafts to Lambda Photometrics and are really looking forward to working together. After establishing the Sales, Service & Applications support of a previous SEM manufacturer, we are in an excellent position to determine what works and what doesn’t. We took the decision some time ago, after listening to customer feedback, to offer a more cost effective, open architecture Table Top SEM as well as Floor Mounted systems. Lambda can now offer a better Table Top machine and industry leading Floor Mounted systems providing the best resolution and sample size options available. The Table Top Cube II offers the best resolution, reliability and value, the Genesis Compact Floor Mounted and the Veritas full size Large Chamber range of Scanning Electron Microscopes offer everything required of entry and mid-range floor-based systems at very competitive prices.”
EmCrafts Co, Ltd is South Korea’s leading SEM manufacturer. EmCrafts CEO, JB Chun, commented: "We are delighted to have an agreement with Lambda Photometrics. Lambda has an excellent reputation with the Table Top systems in the UK & Ireland and were looking to develop a relationship with a leading SEM manufacturer. EmCrafts offer both Table Top and Floor Mounted systems. As a result, Lambda will represent our range of portable Table Top Cube Series, with a full 5-axis stage and 5.0nm resolution in SE mode, the Genesis, a compact floor based SEM with up to a 300,000x magnification and down to 3.0nm in SE mode and the Large Chamber Veritas SEM, offering over 200mm sized X,Y and Z stage and a wide variety of detectors. With our combined resources we will continue to offer and develop our leading range of SEM’s and supporting technologies."
