Meet your materials analytical challenges with FEI’s SEM, TEM and DualBeam FIB/SEM and ASPEX industrial microscopy solutions. Our combined instrument portfolio provides high resolution imaging and analysis, automated microanalysis, 2D and 3D materials characterization and in situ observation of your sample's property changes during dynamic experiments such as humidity or thermal cycling. FEI delivers the analytical results you require on a broad range of samples including powders, polymers, nanoparticles, ceramics, metals, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, catalysts, and solar or fuel cell materials.

FEI  is the world leader in the production and distribution of electron microscopes, including scanning electron microscopes (SEM), transmission electron microscopes (TEM), DualBeam­ instruments, and focused ion beam tools (FIB), for nanoscale research, serving a broad range of customers worldwide. Nanotechnology is the science of finding, characterizing, analyzing and fabri­cating materials smaller than 100 nano­meters (a nanometer is one billionth of a meter). FEI's global customer base includes researchers, scientists, engineers, lab managers, and other skilled professionals.

FEI manufactures complete microscope solutions that serve the following four segments:

  • Research - includes a broad range of institutes, universities, and national laboratories conducting nanoscale research for a wide variety of applications including 3D nano-characterization, in situ nanoprocesses, and 3D nanoprototyping.
  • Natural Resources - serving the micro-analysis needs of natural resources companies focused on mining, oil & gas exploration, and geosciences. Also provides solutions for forensics including gunshot residue analysis (GSR) and forensic science. (link will redirect to our Natural Resources micro-site,
  • Electronics - developers and manufacturers in the semiconductor, data storage and  related fields with an application focus in circuit edit, 3D metrology, defect analysis, failure analysis and TEM sample preparation.
  • Life Sciences - includes insti­tutes, universities, pharmaceutical companies and hospitals working in life sciences research and development in the areas of structural biology, cellular biology, tissue biology, and biomaterials.

FEI's market-leading instruments include the latest in ion-­ and electron­-beam technologies. From the most power­ful, commercially-­available microscope­, the Titan 60-300 S/TEM, to the Magellan, the first extreme high-resolution (XHR) scanning electron microscope, FEI produces cutting-edge tools that are revolutionizing nanoscale exploration from the classroom to the laboratory to the clean room. With a global commitment to customers before and after the sale, FEI is bringing the nanoscale within the grasp of leading researchers and manufacturers, and helping them turn some of the biggest ideas of this century into reality. FEI maintains research and develop­ment centers in North America, Europe, and Asia, and sales and service operations in more than 50 countries around the world.
