FIB sample preparation

The new Thermo Scientific Helios 5 DualBeam builds on the high-performance imaging and analysis capabilities of the industry-leading Helios DualBeam family. It is carefully designed to meet the needs of materials science researchers and engineers for a wide range of focused ion beam scanning electron microscopy (FIB-SEM) use cases – even on the most challenging samples. 

The Helios 5 DualBeam redefines the standard in high-resolution imaging with high materials contrast; fast, easy, and precise high-quality sample preparation for (S)TEM imaging and atom probe tomography (APT) as well as the high-quality subsurface and 3D characterization. Building on the proven capabilities of the Helios DualBeam family, additional advancements to the new Helios 5 DualBeam were designed to ensure the system is optimized for a variety of manual or automated workflows. Those improvements include:

  • Greater ease-of-use: The Helios 5 DualBeam is the most accessible DualBeam for users of all experience levels. Operator training may be reduced from months to days and the system design is helping all operators to achieve consistent, repeatable results on a wide variety of advanced applications. 
  • Increased productivity: Advanced automation capabilities, increased robustness and stability enhancements in the Helios 5 DualBeam and Thermo Scientific AutoTEM 5 software can significantly increase the sample preparation throughput by allowing unattended and even overnight operation. 
  • Improved time to results: The Helios 5 DualBeam now includes FLASH, a new concept of tuning the image. With conventional microscopes, each time an operator needs to acquire an image, the microscope has to be carefully tuned by iterative alignments. With the Helios 5 DualBeam, a simple gesture across the screen will activate FLASH, which automatically adjusts these parameters. The automatic adjustments can significantly improve throughput, data quality, and simplify the acquisition of high-quality images.

TEM sample preparation

The Thermo Scientific Helios 5 DualBeam is part of the fifth generation of the industry-leading Helios DualBeam family. It is carefully designed to meet the needs of scientists and engineers, combining the innovative Elstar electron column for extreme high-resolution imaging and the high materials contrast with the superior Thermo Scientific Tomahawk Ion Column for the fast, easy, and precise high-quality sample preparation. In addition to the advanced electron and ion optics, the Helios 5 DualBeam incorporates a suite of state of-the-art technologies that enables simple and consistent high-resolution (S)TEM and atom probe tomography (APT) sample preparation, as well as the high-quality subsurface and 3D characterization, even on the most challenging samples.
