Phenom-World helps you to stay competitive in a world where critical dimensions are continuously getting smaller with the new generation Phenom™ G2 desktop scanning electron microscope (SEM). The Phenom G2 desktop SEM offers direct access to the high-resolution and high-quality imaging necessary in a large variety of applications. The Phenom G2 desktop SEM combines the speed and usability of an optical microscope with better depth of focus, chemical contrast and higher resolution.

Phenom-World is introducing two new models of the Phenom: Phenom G2 pure desktop SEM and Phenom G2 pro desktop SEM. Both models provide the same well-known and further improved Phenom ease of use and an imaging speed that is unique.

Desktop scanning electron microscopes

The Phenom G2 pure desktop SEM is the most economical solution for high-resolution imaging. It is a focused system that provides the best imaging results in its class. The high brightness, long lifetime of the CeB6 source, and patented sample loading system give the operator easy access to a broad range of possibilities. The Phenom G2 pure desktop SEM can be upgraded to a Phenom G2 pro desktop SEM in our service centre.

The Phenom G2 pro provides images at an even higher magnification and resolution while maintaining ease of use. Furthermore, the Phenom G2 pro desktop SEM allows its users to work with advanced applications such as Pro Suite and active sampleholders. The Phenom G2 pro desktop SEM is a flexible system that can load a large variety of samples and process data to generate detailed results.

The Phenom G2 is used in a large variety of markets and applications:

  • Quality control of semiconductors
  • Tribology studies in industry
  • Inspection of stents for life sciences
  • SEM-access in education
  • Engine wear for avionics and automotive applications
  • Fast screening tool for high-end research
  • Investigation of toolmarks and cartridges in forensics
  • Prescreening of high-end SEM samples
  • Inspection tool for TEM sample preparation

Desktop SEM for materials and metallurgy

The Phenom G2 desktop SEM allows operators to perform micro-structural analysis and non-destructive testing of metals. This is to identify variations that occur after treatment and to determine compositional contrast.

Desktop SEM for the pharmaceutical industry

The Phenom G2 desktop SEM will help to clearly understand, identify, categorise and classify the morphology of fine particles and tablets, which makes it ideal for use in the pharmaceutical industry.

Desktop SEM for integrated learning

The ease of use and automated working methods of the Phenom G2 desktop SEM make it a practical teaching tool that allows students to get a clear understanding of the world beyond what the human eye can perceive.

Desktop SEM for forensics

The Phenom G2 desktop SEM is used to perform ballistic research, to identify scratches and indents from toolmarks, for human and animal hair classification, and for scrutinising residues such as sand and diatoms.

Desktop SEM with rapid processing

The Phenom G2 desktop SEM is an ideal tool for processing samples and evaluating quality in a short time-span. The rapid sample preparation and loading time improves the efficiency and effectiveness of failure analysis.

The Phenom G2 desktop SEM has become a superior technology as it offers a large depth of focus that helps you to image any 3D-shaped sample. The unique system design enables automated processing of image data and application specific solutions
