Manipulation and probing in a desktop SEM

3D printing has revolutionized the way to create microscale structures, enabling rapid prototyping and fabrication of complex architectures. But with the small size, comes the big challenge in characterization and testing.Exaddon, Imina Technologies SA, and Thermo Fisher Scientific joined expertise to show how micromanipulation and probing inside a desktop SEM enable quick and precise electrical characterization of microscale objects, such as microsprings.

Exaddon has 3D printed high-quality microsprings with contact area of 15 μm2 . The microsprings were electrically characterized using the in situ electrical probing solution by Imina Technologies SA. The experiment was conducted inside the Thermo Fisher Scientific Phenom XL G2 desktop SEM.
