Application Note: Microstructure of Skin Cream Using Cryo-planing and Cryo-FIB-SEM
28 November 2017

Soft materials containing water or other solvents, such as home and personal care products, are not high vacuum compatible. Therefore it is difficult to expose their microstructure. This application article demonstrates the use of cryo-SEM and cryo-FIB-SEM techniques in exposing the microstructure of a soft material, using face cream as an example.
