JEOL JXA-8530F Hyperprobe Electron Probe Microanalyzer (EPMA)

Location: LS 117

Microprobe

The JXA-8530F HyperProbe is a new generation FE-EPMA featuring a field emission (FE) electron gun. The FE electron gun produces an extremely small spot size at low accelerating voltage even with high probe currents (40 nm at 10 nA and 10 kV, 100 nm at 100 nA and 10 kV), allowing for WDS analyses with high X-ray spatial resolution. The microprobe is only 1/5 to 1/10 the size of that produced in a thermionic-emission electron gun in conventional EPMA with tungsten filament or LaB6 tip.
