CLUE Series – Cathodoluminescence solutions for electron microscopy

HORIBA Scientific’s Cathodoluminescence Universal Extension (CLUE) enhances any SEM’s analytical capabilities while maintaining its original functionality. Since the sample is able to remain in the same spot, CLUE can easily be combined with other microscopy applications, such as EDS and EBIC.

CLUE systems provide high resolution spectral information with the spatial resolution of an electron probe. We feature the widest spectral range available (UV-VIS to IR), fast CL imaging, CL spectroscopy for detecting trace elements in natural and synthetic minerals, and hyperspectral mapping.

Cathodoluminescence (CL) is an essential non-destructive analytical technique useful in a wide range of applications including semiconductors, optoelectronics, dielectrics and ceramics. CL is also a powerful tool for investigations in geology, mineralogy, forensics, and life sciences.

  • Spectral coverage 185 – 2500 nm
  • Up to 4 detectors (single or multichannel) for panchromatic or monochromatic imaging, spectral and hyperspectral analysis
  • High spectral resolution
  • All reflective optics for highest sensitivity
