The AZtec and NordlysNano system addresses the growing requirements of nanoscale applications: EBSPs are imaged with the best sensitivity, lowest optical distortion and highest resolution.

  • Acquire and solve patterns in real-time at low beam currents and at low kV
  • Highest sensitivity at the fastest possible speeds – minimise the time and the beam current required for data acquisition

NordlysNano is optimised for high spatial resolution EBSD

  • Designed for data acquisition at low kV, for the best spatial resolution EBSD analysis of nano materials
  • Efficient low beam current operation, requiring only 100 pA to operate, ideal for:
    • Tungsten or LaB6 SEMs operated in high spatial resolution mode
    • Cold FE SEMs
    • Thermal FE SEMs that operate with low probe currents

NordlysNano is optimised for high pattern resolution EBSD

NordlysNano at highest resolution uses the full 1344 x 1024 CCD array to digitise EBSPs. The acquisition of higher
resolution patterns is crucial for certain applications:

  • Difficult to index, lower symmetry materials, where higher pixel resolution can aid in phase identification
  • Required for cross-correlation techniques, for example, elastic strain analysis
  • Correct measure of orientation in pseudo-symmetric materials with c/a ratios as low as 2%
