Intelligent Scanning Electron Microscope Analysis
The IntelliSEM represents a significant advancement in the automated identification and analysis of particles, such as inclusions and environmental particulate.
The IntelliSEM characterizes large populations of particles accurately, automatically, and rapidly. The IntelliSEM software suite applies high-performance instrument-control and data analysis algorithms to scanning electron microscope (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) systems, and provides a rich set of tools for data visualization, mining, and management.
IntelliSEM's Workbench allows multiple users to simultaneously review the data stored in the central database. This allows for a team to work collaboratively and gain new insights.

IntelliSEM in Action
Within the IntelliSEM software, the Prospector function collects data and the Workbench allows for data review and reporting.
Prospector is the online analysis module. It takes full control of the SEM/EDS instrumentation and uses intelligent algorithms to rapidly scan large sample areas, while providing fine-grained measurements of each particle detected.
IntelliSEM analysis can be observed during the automated particle analysis process. The SEM field image illustrates the particle size measurement on a PM10 sample with perimeter overlays; and the particle micro-images and X-ray spectra are presented.
Once Analysis is complete, the
Workbench provides a user-friendly
interface to allow the analyst to review
the results and compile summaries.
Summarization protocols can utilize
predefined rules, visual review, or
clustering algorithms to combine
similar features into unique classes.
It can also integrate other sample
information and characterize results to
provide a complete review and report.
The IntelliSEM Workbench module provides flexibility for data review, particle classification, and reporting. Particle relocation and customized X-ray spectra processing are among the many functions also available in the Workbench.
