Materials insights at the nanoscale

Use the JOLT cathodoluminescence (CL) detector for rapid and convenient CL detection. Obtain powerful insights into geological materials by mapping the emitted CL intensity to reveal properties such as crystal growth, zonation, deformation, and defect structures. Or measure the CL emission of bulk materials such as semiconductors and rare-earth doped materials. To gain deeper insights into the properties of your sample, you can combine JOLT with other SEM-based techniques and perform correlative imaging, or use it as an effective screening tool for advanced characterization techniques such as mass spectrometry.

JOLT in Action

JOLT, our newest addition to the cathodoluminescence (CL) solutions family, is an entry-level CL-intensity detector based on state-of-the-art solid-state detectors. It offers direct detection, containing no moving parts. You can choose between two versions: a panchromatic detector and an RGB (colored CL) detector. Integrating the JOLT into your SEM couldn't be simpler as it is compatible with all SEM brands, is mounted on a single vacuum port, and is controlled by a small software app in combination with the SEM control computer.
