Rapid Stage

High-speed Elemental Mapping with Micro-XRF on SEM

Rapid Stage is a modular piezo-based stage designed to be mounted on top of standard SEM stages to enable high-speed mapping over large areas.

Key facts and benefits

  • Can be adapted to most common SEM stages
  • Controlled independently from the SEM stage 
  • Travel speed up to 4 mm/s
  • Low levels of trace elements in samples (e.g. grain mounts, rock slabs, thin sections, etc.) in a short time
  • Can be used simultaneously with e-beam excitation (for low energy elements)
  • Works in VP/LV mode
  • Quick stage change
