Orion 6 for windows is an interface developped to empower SEM's and STEM's microscopes, to grab images the digital ways.

Basic Package Description

  • Digitizes in any size between 16x16 and 8192x8192 pixels (depending on your SEM)
  • Square pixels in any mode
  • Connects to any existing SEM or STEM
  • 100% reliable for your SEM and lowest noise level due to optical isolation between SEM and PC
  • Grabs images in slow scan and full photo resolution
  • Unique, programmable oversampling factor dramatically reduces image noise in real time
  • The grabbed images are immediately available to the user for processing, measurements, etc...
  • They are stored in full resolution, 256 grey levels per pixel (frame integration uses 16 bits per pixel during grabbing)
  • Easy transfer to any other application (clipboard)
  • Image contrast and brightness adjustments after grabbing
  • All popular image formats are available for storage on your hard- or network drive (.bmp, .jpg, .tif...)
  • Full compatible with Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000 and Windows XP; important: for the moment, the system is not yet compatible with Windows Vista.


Orion can be interfaced with any SEM/Microprobe or STEM system.
