The ES 40C1 Electron Source is a scanable electron gun with small spot profile.

Due to the high transmission of its Einzel-Lens, the ES 40C delivers a high electron beam current over a wide energy range. The ES 40C1 is designed for a stable and reliable operation in e.g. AES, scanning applications, imaging, EELS and electron pulse or desorption experiments (ESD).


  • Fine focus microformed tip cathode
  • Scannable electron source with a small spot profile
  • Correction of incident electron beam angle (provided by ES40-PS power supply)
  • Integrated scan and deflection unit


  • Linear shift
  • Customised insertion length
  • Source shielding material (μ-metal or copper)
