The talk gives an overview about the scientific work with an FEI ESEM Quanta 600 F at the Research Institute for Electron Microscopy in Graz, Austria. Several special stages like a Tensile Stage (Gatan/Deben M5000 ), a Peltier Cooled Specimen Stage and a Heating Stage with temperatures up to 1500C lead to interesting results in several fields of science. In the context of in situ experiments specific scientific problems and customers demands may lead to new solutions, for which developments by engineers and competent manufacturing are essential. This aspect is elaborated discussing several new mountings for the tensile stage enabling investigations in the field of polymer science, life science and industrial contract work. As a new development by the Research Institute a cooling platform is presented, which makes kryo tensile testing possible. Additionally the scripting interface, which enables automated experiments in the FEI ESEM Quanta 600 F, is explained.
