Volcano Series In-Situ Holders (Heating&Biasing&High Tilt)

Product Features

The Volcano Series In Situ Holders (Heating&Biasing&High Tilt) use MEMS chips to apply thermal and electric field control to the samples, and construct a thermoelectric composite multi field automatic control and feedback measurement system in a high angle sample stage. Combined with various modes such as EDS, EELS, SAED, HRTEM, STEM, etc., it achieves real-time and dynamic monitoring of key information such as microstructure, phase transition, element valence state, microstress, and atomic level structure and composition evolution of the samples under vacuum environment with temperature and electric field changes at the nano or even atomic level.
