Complement Your SEM with the Benefits of an Electron Probe Micro Analyzer
The QUANTAX WDS (WDX) for SEM consists of the XSense wavelength dispersive spectrometer yielding the best resolution among all parallel-beam WDS systems. The large solid angle, due to the parallel-beam design, results in a much higher signal intensity for low-energy X-rays compared to a Rowland-circle based WDS spectrometer.
The high signal-to-noise ratios that are characteristic for WDS are further enhanced by a unique secondary optic that suppresses background artefacts.
Equipped with the finest grazing incidence optic and up to six analyzer crystals, the QUANTAX WDS has a superior sensitivity for low energy X-rays from 70 eV upwards.
An ingenious automatic optic alignment system and a unique pressure-controlled proportional counter ensure accurate and reproducible results.
