  • FIB systems operate in a similar fashion to a scanning electron microscope (SEM) except, rather than a beam of electrons and as the name implies, FIB systems use a finely focused beam of ions (usually gallium) that can be operated at low beam currents for imaging or at high beam currents for site specific sputtering or milling. (wikipedia.org)
  • As the diagram on the right shows, the gallium (Ga+) primary ion beam hits the sample surface and sputters a small amount of material, which leaves the surface as either secondary ions (i+ or i-) or neutral atoms (n0). (wikipedia.org)
  • As the primary beam rasters on the sample surface, the signal from the sputtered ions or secondary electrons is collected to form an image. (wikipedia.org)
