The environmental SEM has been developed to a stage where colour can be introduced during imaging. A new approach to production of colour micrographs is demonstrated together with some typical uses of the environmental mode of SEM. A combination of the outputs of two backscattered electron (BSE) detectors alone or in combination with the outputs from a gaseous detector device can form images corresponding to particular aspects of a given specimen. Two or more of these images can be superimposed… 

Design and construction of an environmental SEM (part 4)

A new detection configuration using the gaseous detector device in the environmental scanning electron microscope (ESEM) is demonstrated. First, the pressure-limiting aperture (PLA1) is used

Backscattered electron detection in environmental SEM

A technique for obtaining scanning electron micrographs in colour

A digital electronic unit is described which, by modifying the video signal of the scanning electron microscope (SEM), permits the selection of images in separate tonal or grey‐scale levels. By the

A method for preparing colored scanning electron micrographs using SE and BSE images

Biological specimens impregnated with heavy metal are observed in an SEM equipped with a sensitive BSE detector. The SE image and the BSE image are successively recorded under the same conditions.

The examination of fresh or living plant material in an environmental scanning electron microscope

An environmental scanning electron microscope (ESEM) has been developed which allows the examination of specimens at pressures up to 6 kPa, and the plant materials can survive the hypobaric pressure and beam irradiation, especially if the latter is carefully controlled.
