Scanning Electron Microscopy: The Philips XL30 Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) is one of a generation of SEMs that is completely controlled from a computer workstation. The XL series instruments are controlled by a personal computer running Microsoft Windows NT. This EMAL instrument employs a tungsten filament and is capable of functioning in both high vacuum mode and ESEM mode . This makes the instrument ideal for both imaging and microanalysis of a wide range of both electrically conducting and insulating materials.
