  2. 2.  So far, we covered: the bits of optics we need to know (ray diagrams,optical elements, lens equation, magnification,focus) why we need electrostatic lenses & how we get it how they work, how electrons travel throughthem This presentation covers the focal and zoom-lens properties of electrostatic lenses I will also mention the (primary) aberrations.Introduction2

  10. 10. • Electrostatic lenses are fairly simple static fieldsystems, composed of a few electrodes held atpossibly different potentials.• They are widely used in electron and ion beaminstruments, both in sources and for extraction andimaging.• Electrodes of lenses are often made of coaxial• cylinders or• thin apertures(O. Sise, Master Thesis, July 2005)(N. Okumus, BSC Thesis, July 2007)Types of Electrostatic Lenses10
  11. 11. Some Examples11
  12. 12.  The two-electrodelens is often usedwhen the image andobject are required tobe in space ofdifferent potential. The second electrodeis placed at a higheror lower potential,thus providingacceleration ordeceleration of thebeam.Two-element lens12
  13. 13. The electron-opticalproperties of a two-element lens can bepresented in a diagram,showing the imageposition corresponding toa given object distance,with the acceleration ratio(V2/V1>1) as a parameter(the corresponding datafor retarding lenses(V2/V1<1) can be obtainedfrom the same diagram).Magnification lines arealso indicated.Two-element lens:P-Q Diagrams13
  14. 14.  In order to focus a beam without changing itsfinal energy, a lens with at least threeelectrodes is necessary.Three-element lens14
  15. 15. In an acceleration ordeceleration lens, it isvery often desirable tobe able to keep theimage of a givenobject fixed when theacceleration /deceleration ratio andmagnification arechanged. A lensoperated in this way isusually referred to asa zoom lens.Three-element lens:Zoom Lenses15
  16. 16. Calculation of zoom-lenscurves using simplexoptimization which is usedto identify locations of somerepresentative set ofminimums (dots) for athree-aperture lens withA/D = 1, P/D = 5 and Q/D =5. One can roughly see fromthe plots where the surfaceminimums are, but it doesnot precisely identify thelocations of the minimums.Therefore, an optimizationis necessary.Three-element lens:Zoom Lenses16
  17. 17.  The paraxial approximation applies whenever the angleand distance between the system’s optical axis and theray of interest are small. This allows the use of the small angle approximations(sin(α) ≈ α, tan(α) ≈ α and cos(α) ≈ 1) when tracing thepath of the ray through an optical system (such as alens). However, when the electrons are not moving close tothe axis, then the basic approximation begins to fail andaberrations start to form. As in light optics, the optics of charged particles suffersfrom a number of image aberrations and distortions. Ofprimary concern are spherical and chromaticaberrations.Paraxial Approximation & Aberrations17
  18. 18.  Spherical aberration is most important ascompared with other lens aberrations. It appearsin the cubic dependence of the angle oftrajectory refraction on its radial position.Aberrations:Spherical Aberration18

  22. 22. The particles in a beam will vary some in velocity, soparticles with slightly different energies (δE) get focusedat different image planes, and the focal point becomesblurred.Always some spreadin initial electronenergies as leavecathodeW ~ 2 eVLaB6 ~ 1 eVFE ~ 0.2 to 0.5 eVMinimize by decreasein αAberrations:Chromatic Aberration22
  23. 23. The chromatic aberration coefficient in the image plane isdescribed by δr = −MCcα0 δE/E0.The same reasoning can be applied to find the chromaticaberration coefficients Ci.Cc = chromatic aberrationcoefficientα = convergence angleDirectly related to focallengthMuch less significant at highE0Aberrations:Chromatic Aberration23

  25. 25.  It is not yet clear the extent to which type of lenses is moredesirable over the other.This largely depends on thespecific application and the overall length of the lenssystem employed. Nevertheless, computer optimization of electrostaticlenses is certainly important.This will save time andresources in design of future charged particle opticalsystems. To provide more flexibility, both in terms of energy rangeand for optimization with respect to optical properties,more independent lens elements have to be added. If more degrees of freedom are desirable, it is probablybetter to use some combination of such basic unitsseparated by field-free regions than to design a lens wheremore electrodes are closely spaced.Summary25
