Environmental SEM allows the observation of samples in a vacuum-free atmosphere. Water vapor is insufflated inside the chamber during the pumping process (trough purge cycles) what will allow to work at chamber pressures as high as 2600 Pa. The combination of this mode with a peltier stage allow us to work at 100% humidity in the chamber what will facilitate the visualization of fully hydrated samples and perform dynamic experiments through pressure changes, including hydration – dehydration sequences.
