Why is Dose Important for Your Workflow?

Isolating the behavior of your sample from the effects of the electron beam is critical in Electron Microscopy. The high intensity electron beam can cause multiple forms of interaction with your sample. This can include multiple types of damage, for instance; contamination of the samples with hydrocarbons, bubble formation, sputtering, and radiolysis. However, constructive interactions have been used in microscopy techniques on many different samples. Each of these beam effects can complicate your experiment, therefore it is of high importance that any microscopy user understand the dose they expose their sample to in order to account for these effects.

Dose Map

Live dose maps provide a colorful and quantitative visualization to illustrate where the beam has impacted your sample and tell you exactly how much current at each pixel.

Dose Limit Indicators

User-defined dose levels are easily monitored in highly visible gauges, allowing you to manage your session and keep within your dose budget.

Spot Fading

A powerful tool to enable you to understand the degradation and contamination due to beam exposure, spot fading provides valuable information to the state of your sample.


With accurate calibrations using semi-automated machine vision routines, AXON Dose ensures the best accuracy and precision for dose quantification.  With live heat maps constantly updating while you image, user-defined dose limits and indicators, and tools like spot fading for analyzing sample degradation, dose can be managed like never before.  And of course, all metadata flows straight into Studio for real-time or off-line analysis and sharing.

Combine AXON With Our In Situ Solutions

AXON Synchronicity and AXON Studio work hand in hand with our heating and biasing (Fusion AX), liquid cell (Poseidon AX) and gas cell (Atmosphere AX) solutions. Live image streams are fully enriched with TEM, camera/detector and in situ metadata and are easily organized, viewed, filtered and published. Discover subtle trends in your data that would have previously gone unnoticed and find your breakthrough.

In Situ Gas Cell

Atmosphere AX introduces realistic, environmental temperatures and pressures inside the TEM, enabling you to image materials and processes in real-time.
