HORIBA Scientific Introduces New CLUE Series Detectors for Scanning Electron Microscopes
Scalable platform for imaging and spectroscopic analysis of nano-objects with SEM and dual SEM/Focused Ion Beam microscopes 
HORIBA Scientific, a global leader in optical spectroscopy instruments and solutions, is pleased to announce 4 new detectors in its CLUE Series for Scanning Electron Microscopes (SEM) and dual SEM/Focused Ion Beam (FIB) microscopes. 
The CLUE (Cathodo-Luminescence Universal Extension) series is designed for use in materials science, mineralogy, geology, life sciences and forensics applications. They interface with any SEM, are fully automated, modular for easy upgrade and offer the widest spectral range available (UV-Vis-IR).   
The new CLUE Series includes 4 models: 
  • I-CLUE fast Cathodo-Luminescence (CL) imaging system offers a large field of view ellipsoidal collection mirror. i-CLUE is field upgradeable to a complete spectroscopy solution, offering high sensitivity CL detection at an affordable price.
  • F-CLUE rugged imaging and hyperspectral CL solution is an easy upgrade on existing configurations. With its ultra-compact design inside (fully retractable mirror collection) and outside the specimen chamber and its fiber coupled spectrometer fits every customer having a microscope with a free horizontal port.
  • H-CLUE imaging and hyperspectral CL solution features the best performance in the market by combining a high quality parabolic mirror for DUV-VIS-NIR, direct optical coupling, and high resolution spectrometer.
  • R-CLUE combines HORIBA expertise in Cathodoluminescence, Raman spectroscopy and Photoluminescence within one compact fiber coupled solution. 
SEM-CL helps discover the nature of defects, structures, stress at the nanoscale (<20nm spatial resolution), making it the ideal tool for novel nanomaterials characterization. 
Designed for enhanced flexibility for multiple applications of zircons, phosphors and other minerals, to semiconductor nitrides, thin films solar cells, and 2D materials, the HORIBA CLUE Series offers the ultimate sensitivity for your sample of interest. 
HORIBA Scientific’s expertise in optics, detectors, vacuum technology and spectroscopy provides every customer with accurate information on hardware and software, regardless of your sample type. The HORIBA CLUE Series is already deployed in internationally recognized academic and industry research and quality control laboratories worldwide. 
The HORIBA CLUE Series come with on-site installation and training, technical support, and application support to help optimize your experiment.
