Scanning electron microscope. Computer artwork of a scanning electron microscope (SEM) with an abstract background. An SEM uses an electron beam to obtain a three-dimensional image of an object at magnifications much higher than can be obtained using light waves. The beam is scanned over the sample in a vacuum, causing the emission of secondary electrons. These secondary electrons are detected and used to form the image, which is displayed on a screen.
