Scanning electron microscope TESCAN CLARA

Microscope with exceptional imaging capabilities

High resolution

TESCAN CLARA is an ultra-high-resolution FEG SEM providing sub-nanometre performance. It is an ideal microscope for a multipurpose microscopy facility and provides morphological and compositional analysis of various materials at the micro and nanoscale.

TESCAN CLARA optics have been designed specifically for imaging. They offer excellent resolution at low beam energies, and provide exceptional imaging of beam-sensitive and non-conductive samples.

Perfect for complex experiments

TESCAN CLARA’s chamber is purposely designed for microanalysis. It can integrate many analytical detectors and spectrometers, making it suitable for customisable configuration for specific applications and providing flexibility to carry out complex experiments.

Powerful detectors for many applications

Our setup has the latest generation EDS, EBSD and WDS detectors and powerful secondary and in-chamber SE and BSE detectors.

The system can work in low-vacuum mode and can fit a cryo-stage in the future.
