Intelligent Scanning Electron Microscopy for Failure Analysis, Source Appropriation, and New Product Introductions
The IntelliSEM represents a significant advancement in the automated identification and analysis of particles, such as inclusions and environmental particulate.
The IntelliSEM characterizes large populations of particles accurately, automatically, and rapidly. The IntelliSEM software suite applies high-performance instrument-control and data analysis algorithms to scanning electron microscope (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) systems, and provides a rich set of tools for data visualization, mining, and management.
IntelliSEM in Scientific Publications
In the last two years alone, IntelliSEM has been featured in: Iron & Steel Technology, Science of the Total Environment, Environmental Science Nano, and Aerosol Science and Technology magazine.
IntelliSEM Samples from the International Space Station
Particulate captured from the TPS100, a joint product between RJ Lee Group and the University of North Carolina, are analyzed using IntelliSEM – back on Earth of course.

IntelliSEM uses MSSQL databases to retrieve system parameters and store acquired data, keeping all data in a single location.
IntelliSEM’s Workbench allows multiple users to simultaneously review the data stored in the central database. This allows for a team to work collaboratively and gain new insights.
Multi-resolution imaging allows for analyses to use different magnifications for particle feature detection and measurement. This allows the analysis to search for particles at lower magnifications then increase magnification to measure and acquire elemental information.
Analytical protocols are stored in the database and can be shared among users. The one-button approach further improves reproducibility.
IntelliSEM’s Workbench provides a customizable interface for data visualization and data analysis; user specific visualization tools can be developed to make the review process more efficient.
IntelliSEM’s central database allows for access to the data from multiple locations; users can review and summarize data from the office, remote workplace, or anywhere in the world.
Prospector is the online analysis module. It takes full control of the SEM/EDS instrumentation and uses intelligent algorithms to rapidly scan large sample areas, while providing fine-grained measurements of each particle detected.
IntelliSEM analysis can be observed during the automated particle analysis process. The SEM field image illustrates the particle size measurement on a PM10 sample with perimeter overlays; and the particle micro-images and X-ray spectra are presented.
Once analysis is complete, the Workbench provides a user-friendly interface to allow the analyst to review the results and compile summaries. Summarization protocols can utilized predefined rules, visual review, or clustering algorithms to combine similar features into unique classes. It can also integrate other sample information and characterize results to provide a complete review and report.
