Hybrid microscope

  • 12-Aug-2011 11:28 EDT

Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) introduces the Aquila hybrid microscope, which combines the versatility of optical microscopy with the power of a scanning electron microscope (SEM) in a mobile, accessible instrument. The microscope magnifies from 30x in optical mode up to 50,000x as an SEM. The simplistic tool features an all-in-one design without separate pumps or computers; intuitive interface; optical navigation map for target acquisition and repositioning; point-and-position image and rotation control; improved file management and sample loading; full annotation control; and a portable 0.3 m2 (10 ft2) footprint. Aquila is suitable for mining applications including air and water monitoring as well as for metallurgy, metal, and materials analysis.
