This windowless silicon drift detector sensor for TEM applications provides a collection solid angle in the range 0.3 to 0.7 steradians*. Its superb collection efficiency over the entire spectral range, particularly for light elements, means more counts at all energies.
Ideal for conventional 200 kV Field Emission TEMs
Up to 3x collection efficiency for light elements
No compromise in low energy performance, peak-to-background ratio, or resolution
* configuation, pole piece and TEM dependent. The most important measurement for performance of a TEM detector is its solid angle. This varies depending on the microscope and pole piece design. For the X-MaxN TSR we have optimised the distance between the crystal and sample to maximise the solid angle.
