Biological EDS and Multiple Detectors

The introduction of large area SDD detectors with excellent light element performance has greatly improved the EDS analysis prospects for beam sensitive and cryogenically frozen samples. By installing multiple detectors on the same microscope, it is possible to further expand the capabilities of these highly sensitive spectrometers. Below is shown an example of a biological sample analysed on an SEM fitted with three X-MaxN 150 detectors.

Biological EDS and Large Area Mapping

Until recently, X-Ray Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) in biological samples was limited to very basic analysis. Analysis often required higher beam currents than were acceptable: the mapping of small nanostructures could not even be considered due to sample drift and the beam damage that prolonged exposure would cause. The introduction of X-MaxN 80 and X-MaxN 150 Very Large Area SDDs is revolutionising biological analysis by maximising count rates even at low accelerating voltages and small spot sizes...

EBSD and EDS analysis of High Entropy Alloy

The exploration of new metallic systems for high temperature applications is an important challenge in today’s materials science. In order to improve these mechanical properties, knowledge of the microstructure is necessary. Therefore, high entropy alloy has been studied by means of energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD).

Technical bulletin: EBSD Sample Preparation

Specimen preparation for EBSD is critical, because the diffracted electrons escape from within only a few tens of nanometres of the specimen surface. However, sample preparation requirements can typically be achieved following some simple recipes. Some broad guidelines are given in this application note.
