The product of such contamination allows charges to accumulate on surfaces and deforms the beam so that it is no longer circular in cross section but “astigmatic” instead. The image resulting from this condition will be lower in resolution. SEMs are equipped with a special set of crossed focusing elements (stigmators), which can be applied independently to make the beam circular. The effects are ﬁrst noticeable at higher magniﬁcations but a severe astigmatism will eventually affect images down to the 100 to 500× range.
Samples are usually introduced in liquid form. Detection limits are usually in the parts-per-billion level. 16 It is a multiple-wavelength analysis technique that generates ultraviolet spectral proﬁles and selective wavelength monitoring.
