The Gatan X-ray Ultramicroscope, or XuM, is a high performance SEM-hosted X-ray Microscope (XRM) that enables non-destructive imaging of the internal structure of samples and 3D X-ray tomography. The system is interfaced to and integrated with the SEM host to provide an easy to use yet powerful x-ray facility with unique imaging capability suitable for both life and materials science applications.
The SEM electron beam is focused onto a target to generate a point-like X-ray source. The generated X-rays are transmitted through the sample and projected onto a sensitive X-ray camera to form an image. The Gatan XuM is installed on FEI Quanta3D dualbeam FEG SEM. A typical tomographic dataset might involve image acquisition at 1° intervals around an arc of 190°.
