Please indicate at which level you agree or disagree with this statement.

“As a metallurgist it’s important that I can visualize the microstructure of the metal used in my application to understand how it will perform (e.g. ductility, structural failure, conductivity, strength). EBSD is perfect for this, but the technology is slow, and interpretation can be difficult.”

Please indicate at which level you agree or disagree with this statement:

“As an academic working in the field of materials science, I need an instrument that can operate at low probe currents. My samples range from sensitive materials that can be damaged by high current electron beams; to very complex structures which need the high resolution imaging offered by low probe current.”
