FEI manufactures complete microscope solutions that serve the following four segments:
- Research - includes a broad range of institutes, universities, and national laboratories conducting nanoscale research for a wide variety of applications including 3D nano-characterization, in situ nanoprocesses, and 3D nanoprototyping.
- Natural Resources - serving the micro-analysis needs of natural resources companies focused on mining, oil & gas exploration, and geosciences. Also provides solutions for forensics including gunshot residue analysis (GSR) and forensic science. (link will redirect to our Natural Resources micro-site, fei-natural-resources.com).
- Electronics - developers and manufacturers in the semiconductor, data storage and related fields with an application focus in circuit edit, 3D metrology, defect analysis, failure analysis and TEM sample preparation.
- Life Sciences - includes institutes, universities, pharmaceutical companies and hospitals working in life sciences research and development in the areas of structural biology, cellular biology, tissue biology, and biomaterials.
FEI's market-leading instruments include the latest in ion- and electron-beam technologies. From the most powerful, commercially-available microscope, the Titan™ 60-300 S/TEM, to the Magellan™, the first extreme high-resolution (XHR) scanning electron microscope, FEI produces cutting-edge tools that are revolutionizing nanoscale exploration from the classroom to the laboratory to the clean room. With a global commitment to customers before and after the sale, FEI is bringing the nanoscale within the grasp of leading researchers and manufacturers, and helping them turn some of the biggest ideas of this century into reality. FEI maintains research and development centers in North America, Europe, and Asia, and sales and service operations in more than 50 countries around the world.
