How Thermo Fisher Scientific supports multi-user research labs with a fully refreshed SEM portfolio.

The popularity of the scanning electron microscope (SEM) has stimulated intense developments over recent decades. As a result, a variety of instrumentation levels are currently available, ranging from entry-level desktop SEMs all the way to monochromated extreme-resolution systems. SEMs have become easier to use even as they now support more sample types, enable analytical techniques and provide greater detail and more information than ever before. For researchers in industrial R&D or academia, it is important to match the right SEM capabilities to actual institution needs. This webinar is designed to help you decide which SEM is best for you by presenting an overview of Thermo Fisher Scientific SEM technology for multi-user research labs. We focus on how these wide-ranging solutions deliver performance, versatility, in situ dynamics and faster time to results.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The value of different instrumentation levels.
  • Which capabilities were added by the latest product launches.
  • Which technologies improve SEM resolution.
  • How the needs for different microanalysis modalities are met (EDX, EBSD, WDS, CL, etc.).
  • How samples are characterized in their natural state without the need for sample preparation.
  • Which technologies improve SEM resolution.

Speaker biography


Daniel Phifer

Product Marketing Engineer, SEM/DualBeam, Thermo Fisher Scientific

Daniel Phifer is a Product Marketing Engineer at Thermo Fisher Scientific in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Daniel provides technical support on SEM, ESEM and DualBeam™ configurations and techniques for materials science. In his almost 20 years at Thermo Fisher Scientific, he has worked in several positions, gaining insight on materials, from metals, minerals, semiconductor devices, forensics, polymers and composites that are either conductive or non-conductive, beam sensitive and sometimes reactive.

Before Thermo Fisher Scientific, Daniel worked for approximately 10 years at the Oak Ridge National Lab complex near Knoxville, Tennessee, USA, where he worked directly with top materials scientists, including David Joy, Larry Allard and Karen Moore. At the Oak Ridge sites, he worked on diverse topics such as soil and air environmental assessment, storage and disposal for nuclear material, and dynamic (heating/cooling/tensile) applications in the early days of Environmental SEM. Daniel has an MS from the University of Tennessee and a BA from Auburn University.
