He lon Microscope

Scanning helium ion microscope
(ORION Plus)
Out of order(2021.8.25)
This is the most advanced scanning helium ion microscope (SHIM) with a very high spatial resolution of sub-nanometer scale. The SHIM has relatively small diffraction and charging effects, large depth-of-focus, and low irradiation imaging but also high resolution nanoscale lithography using the highly focused ion beam. Gas Injection System for ion beam induced deposition was added in 2014.
