Scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) are used in a wide range of fields, such as nanotechnology, metals, semiconductors, ceramics, medicine, and biology. As SEM applications are expanding to not only cover research and development, but also address quality control and product inspection at manufacturing sites, SEM users are in need of fast high-quality data acquisition, as well as simple compositional information confirmation with seamless analytical operation.
To meet these demands, the JSM-IT800 incorporates our In-lens Schottky Plus field emission electron gun for high resolution imaging, and an innovative electron optical control system "Neo Engine", as well as a system of seamless GUI "SEM Center" for fast elemental mapping with a fully embedded JEOL energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer (EDS), as a common platform. Furthermore, the JSM-IT800 allows for the replacement of the objective lens of the SEM as a module, offering different versions to satisfy various users requirements.
The JSM-IT800 is available in five versions with different objective lenses: a hybrid lens version (HL), which is a general-purpose FE-SEM; a super hybrid lens version (SHL/SHLs, two versions with different functions), which enables higher resolution observation and analysis; and the newly-developed semi-in-lens version (i/is, two versions with different functions), which is suited for the observation of semiconductor devices.
The JSM-IT800 can also be equipped with a new Scintillator Backscattered Electron Detector (SBED). The SBED enables easy observation of live images with high responsiveness and produces sharp material contrast even at a low accelerating voltage.
1. In-lens Schottky Plus field emission electron gun
Enhanced integration of the electron gun and low-aberration condenser lens provides higher brightness. An ample probe current is available at a low accelerating voltage (100 nA at 5 kV). The unique In-lens Schottky Plus system allows for a variety of applications, from high resolution imaging to fast elemental mapping, and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) analysis.
2. Neo Engine (New Electron Optical Engine)
Neo Engine is a cutting-edge electron optical system that accumulates many years of JEOL core technologies. Users can perform a stable observation even when changing different observation or analytical conditions. High operability for automatic functions is greatly enhanced.
3. SEM Center / EDS Integration
A GUI "SEM Center" fully integrates with SEM imaging and EDS analysis for providing seamless and intuitive operations. The JSM-IT800 can be enhanced by incorporating optional software add-ons, such as SMILENAVI to assist and provide a learning path for novice users and the LIVE-AI filter (Live Image Visual Enhancer – AI) to acquire a higher quality of live images.
4. Semi-in-lens versions (i/is)
A semi-in-lens achieves ultra high resolution by converging electron beams with the strong magnetic field lens formed below the objective lens. Moreover, the system efficiently collects the low energy secondary electrons emitted from a specimen and detects the electrons with the upper in-lens detector (UID). Thus, it enables high resolution observation and analysis of tilted specimens and cross-sectional specimens, which are required for failure analysis of semiconductor devices. In addition, it is very useful for voltage contrast observation.
5. Upper electron detector (UED)
An upper electron detector can be mounted above the objective lens. The advantage of the system is the ability of acquisition of backscattered electron image, and acquisition of secondary electron image in combination with specimen bias. The electrons emitted from a specimen are selected by an UID filer inside the objective lens. UED and UIT allow multiple information to be acquired in a single scan.
6. New Backscattered Electron Detector
The scintillator backscattered electron detector (SBED, optional) has high responsiveness and is suitable to acquire material-contrast images at a low accelerating voltage.
1) JSM-IT800i version: 5 units/year
2) JSM-IT800is version: 40 units/year

‘Hidden Gem’ Arrives in Rotterdam to be Transformed into Nodule Collection Vessel for The Metals Company21.9.2021 18:37:00 CEST | Press release
The Metals Company (Nasdaq: TMC) today announced that the 228-meter-long former drill ship renamed the Hidden Gem has arrived in Rotterdam, The Netherlands to begin its conversion into what is expected to be the first ship classified as a sub-sea mining vessel by the American Bureau of Shipping. TMC’s strategic partner Allseas acquired the former ultra-deep-water drill ship, which can accommodate 200 people, in March of 2020, as her configuration is well-suited for modifications that will enable the deployment at sea of a 4.5 kilometer-long riser to bring polymetallic nodules up from the seafloor. This press release features multimedia.

Rhizen Pharmaceuticals AG Announces First Patient Dosed in a Phase 2 Study of RP7214 in Covid-19 Patients21.9.2021 18:36:00 CEST | Press release
Rhizen Pharmaceuticals AG, a clinical-stage oncology & inflammation-focussed biopharmaceutical company, today announced that the first patient has been dosed in a Phase 2 clinical trial of RP7214, a small molecule oral dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (DHODH) Inhibitor. The randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 2 study will evaluate the efficacy & safety of oral RP7214, in covid-19 patients with mild, symptomatic disease with an underlying risk factor on the background of promising preclinical efficacy & phase 1 healthy volunteer safety. The study is being conducted in India across 12 centres in coordination with Rhizen’s India affiliate, Incozen Therapeutics Pvt ltd., and is designed to enrol up to 204 patients across both study arms. Viral replication involves a huge demand for building blocks and relies on nucleotides derived from host cells. DHODH is a rate-limiting enzyme in the pyrimidine biosynthesis pathway, inhibition of which leads to depletion of host nucleotide po
Citi Private Bank Finds Cautious Optimism Among Investors for 2022 with Covid-19, Inflation and Peak Market Valuations Top of Mind21.9.2021 18:31:00 CEST | Press release
Citi Private Bank’s Private Capital Group today released the results of its 2021 Family Office Survey, compiling the unique perspectives and insights of many of the world’s sophisticated family offices and ultra-high net worth investors in a challenging climate. This year’s survey included nearly 200 responses, an 11% increase from 2020. Four predominant themes emerged: 1) concern on rising inflation, 2) the prominence of high cash levels in the face of low yield environment, 3) continued growth in portfolio allocation to direct investing opportunities, and 4) a marked comeback in portfolio values year over year despite prevalent degree of macroeconomic uncertainty. While over three-fourths of all respondents seek returns of 5% or more over the next 12 months, the outlook is more optimistic for family offices with AUM over $500 million with 30% seeking over 10% returns versus 19% of family offices with AUM under $500 million. This likely factors in the additional institutional tools an

Latest Report From Arthur D. Little Brings New Perspectives on Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS)21.9.2021 17:22:00 CEST | Press release
Arthur D. Little (ADL) today released a new report on the current state of the global Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) market. Entitled ‘How To Realize The Promise Of Mobility-as-a-Service’, this study is released by the company’s Future Of Mobility Lab. While much has been written over the past few years about MaaS and its vision of revolutionizing transport in the modern city, much of the current discourse has been either academic or conceptual, envisaging ambitious futures built on fragile foundations. With this study, ADL aims to offer a more objective view of the subject, based on the company’s wide-ranging consultation with both public and private actors, and its assessment of the successes and failures of real world MaaS deployments. The study identifies five key factors for achieving a successful MaaS deployment. These are: Recognizing that MaaS is more than just an app, but should be part of a broader mobility vision requiring the development of integrated mobility policies, physi
