JEOL: A new point-and-shoot navigation system that makes finding precise locations on a sample both fast and easy for SEM and EPMA users, the Stage Navigation System combines software with a camera. The user records an image of the sample, sends the image to the SEM, places the sample on the sample stage and then clicks on the recorded image to specify the area of interest. The software automatically positions the stage with pixel precision to the exact area of the sample to be examined.
