Overall very strong performance.
Application Area: Material characterization from a variety of industries
"The performance of the detector is as advertised. The all-new design with the CMOS detector increases the collection speed by about 10 times. This is very helpful for larger area acquisition and semiconductive samples. The control software has built-in large area scanning and stitching functions. I took one star off in after sales care even though our local engineers have been very responsible and helpful. This reflects the tool itself needs quite some after sale care. We have had to wait for a replacement of the computer that controls the detector for a couple of weeks. The phosphor screen of our detector has some oil leaking that contaminates the screen so it had to be replaced 3-4 times. Our engineer thinks that the excess oil is from the factory and is very timely at changing it every time the issue occurs. However we weren't able to get a "final" fix for this. That's why the one star off."
Symmetry S2, based on the pioneering Symmetry detector, uses customised CMOS technology for superior performance and ease of use. CMOS-based cameras allow for both speed and sensitivity. The high sensitivity of Symmetry S2 means that even challenging samples such as thin films or complex oxides can be imaged with high data quality and with an order of magnitude increase in acquisition speed when compared to both ‘fast’ and ‘sensitive’ traditional CCD detectors.
