Using a Compact Low Voltage FE-SEM in Evaluating Materials Nano-Porosity
5 Nov 2012

Porosity plays an important role in materials mechanical and physical properties. The latter include, for instance, compression and tensile strength, density, and thermal conduction or expansion. It also impacts materials resistance to chemical corrosion. In this application note the Agilent 8500 FE-SEM was used to image a shale sample without the need for metal-coating. The porosity of the sample can be readily calculated using the high resolution images obtained.
