This article discusses the technological developments in the Orion helium ion microscope. This device, which uses a helium field ion gun to increase the detection of surface details at a sub-nanometer level, was developed by helium ion microscope manufacturer SMT Inc. The level of detail possible with helium ions is compared with the levels available from scanning electron microscopes.
