RISE Microscopy is a novel correlative microscopy technique that combines SEM and confocal Raman Imaging and links ultra-structural surface properties to molecular compound information. RISE Microscopy combines an SEM and a confocal Raman microscope. The confocal Raman microscope is integrated into the vacuum chamber of the electron microscope. Non-destructive Raman and SEM measurements are consecutively performed at two different positions inside this chamber using an automatic transfer stage. Calibration of the sample position ensures scanning of the same sample area in both SEM and Raman modes.
The integrated RISE software carries out the required parameter adjustments and instrument alignments. The acquired results can then be correlated and the Raman and SEM images overlaid. RISE Microscopy pairs ease-of-use with exceptional analyzing benefits and is therefore suited for a wide variety of applications such as nanotechnology, materials science, and life science.
