Beam Deflection and Column Condition Graphics
A new feature is the beam deflection and column condition graphics. On the right side of the Acquire! window is displayed the current beam deflection. The actual position is indicated by a red circle and cross and the coordinates are relative to the current magnification. The readout is in microns and pixels (digital scan mode) from the center.
The imaging magnification is used for beam deflection acquisition for unknowns and wavescans (standards are always acquired using the analytical magnification).
The current conditions of the instrument (kilovolts, beam current, etc.) are displayed in the fields below the beam deflection graphic and are updated in real time as the manual or automated acquisition proceeds. During automated beam deflection acquisition (from the Automate!) window, the beam deflection graphic is updated during the acquisition. When deflecting the beam in manual mode from the Imaging window the beam deflection is also correctly displayed.
