What’s inside MountainsSEM®

SEM image colorization & enhancement
  • “Click and color” tool for colorizing SEM images quickly and easily
  • Apply image correction and enhancement tools
3D reconstruction from stereo pairs
  • Reconstruct 3D surface topography from two successive tilted scans of your sample in just a few seconds and obtain accurate height values.
  • Obtain accurate height values and evaluate surface roughness.
3D reconstruction from 4 images

Reconstruct 3D surface topography from 4 images obtained using a four-quadrant detector.

Line edge roughness
  • Calculate line edge roughness (LER) and line width roughness (LWR) parameters on the edges of bands detected in SEM images
Create 3D chemical maps with EDS data

Build spectacular 3D renderings associating EDS (EDX) maps or other spectral/compositional data with topography reconstructed from SEM images

FIB-SEM tomography
  • Load, display and analyze focused ion beam scanning electron microscopy image series
  • Associate tomography and chemical analysis
2D particle analysis

Apply powerful particle analysis tools to your SEM data and automatically identify and quantify features in your image using SEM-specific object recognition.

Fiber Analysis
  • Quantify interstices & individual fibers, even if they overlap
  • Calculate diameter & orientation of fibers
  • Use SEM-dedicated fiber detection algorithms
Correlative analysis
  • Combine SEM images from different detectors or with data from other measurement instruments such as AFM or EDS (EDX)
  • Colocalize your SEM images with spectral analysis data
