HSEA1000 & HSEA500 Heating Stages for EBSD

Example: HSEA-1000 observation of a/g phase transformation of low carbon steel

What are HSEA1000 and HSEA500 in situ Heating Stages?

These SEM heating stages are designed by EBSD experts primarily for EBSD work. Thus performance parameters important for EBSD have been designed and heavily tested and have an outstanding field record. They are compact, retrofittable to most SEMs. They are robust and reliable. However, some customers also use them for applications other than EBSD.

The HSEA1000 programmable in situ heating stage, maximum specification temperature 1000 centigrade

What is special or unique about HSEA500/1000in situ Heating Stages?

Readily retrofittable to most existing SEMs

The in situ stages are very compact and designed to be fixed to the SEM stage like a normal sample-holder. This can be done without any modification of the native SEM stage. Thus the SEM may remain as a multi-application electron microscope and be readily switched between the heating stage application and any other.

1000C and 500C versions

The stages are conservatively specified for 1000C and 500C for the HSEA1000 and HSEA500 respectively. 1000 C is generally high enough to observe grain growth and a/g phase transformation of steel specimens.

Designed for EBSD by EBSD Experts

These stages are designed by people who have spent a lifetime working on EBSD. Thus, for example, the sample fixing method is very carefully considered and developed to minimise drift, shielding, water-cooling. Installation of the higher temperature model is designed to take care of heat-sensitive equipment in the chamber such as detectors. There is accurate temperature programming (PID or manual), 70° tilt for EBSD.
