Orientation Stage (OST) for seamless rotation between test axis and vertical axis

The new Orientation Stage (OST) from Alemnis allows seamless rotation between test axis and vertical axis with a repositioning accuracy of < 500 nm. This video highlights the outstanding precision when a Cobalt phase (grain size 7 ┬Ám) is targeted, indented and imaged by SEM. This technique is paving the way for combined EDS and mechanical property mapping on the same zones of interest.
