Applications EDS for TEM, STEM and T-SEM
Quantification of Pt in a NiSi(Pt)-NiSi
Lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6) is a very illustrative example for quantitative EDS analysis in S/TEM, since it contains two extremes, a very light element (B) and a heavy element (La).

Chemical Phase Analysis of a Layered Structure
It can be advantageous to check hyperspectral images for the existence of chemical phases without applying prior knowledge. Bruker’s ESPRIT AutoPhase automatically finds specimen regions of similar composition by analyzing a HyperMap based on Principle Component Analysis of the spectra. The sensitivity of this procedure can be adjusted. The approach is demonstrated using a multi-layer structure in cross-section as an example.

Chemical Characterization of Nanowires
Nanostructures, such as nanowires and nanorods and functionalized nanovehicles are of growing interest for various applications in nanotechnology, be that nano-electronics or drug delivery in the human body.
Atom Column EDS Analysis
Properties of a semiconductor are determined by its structure on the atomic level, for example by point defects. Using EDS mapping at the highest possible resolution it is possible to locate and characterize such defects.
Identifiying a Single Atom on Graphene
Not only is it the highest art of EDS to obtain spectra of a single atom, but it can also provide valuable new information on the excitation properties of specific elements.

Chemical Composition of Semiconductor Interconnects
Standard energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS or EDX) using detector areas of 30mm² on conventional scanning transmission electron microscopes (STEM) can deliver element mappings with nm resolution within a few minutes. The condition is, that the detector head is small enough (in slim-line design) to get as close to the specimen for (high solid angle) and as high above the specimen (for high take-off angle) as possible. The latter helps to avoid shadowing and absorption effects.
High Resolution Mapping of a Semiconductor Structure Using STEM-EDS in SEM (T-SEM)
Element distribution mapping of semiconductor nanostructures with X-ray based methods is not always straight forward. The need of nanoscale spatial resolution and X-ray peak overlaps are common challenges when investigating semiconductor materials. Sometimes it can be beneficial to use the SEM instead of expensive TEM tools and time for characterization.

Mapping a Magnetic Nanostructure
The specimen consists of a SiO2 sphere coated with nm-thin layers of tantalum (Ta), ruthenium (Ru) and topmost a mixture of cobalt (Co), platinum (Pt), chromium (Cr) and oxygen (O).
Qualitative and Quantitative Mapping of a Pd-Pt Core Shell Particle
Core shell particles play an increasingly important role in nanotechnology, particularily in catalysis. This application example presents element maps of a Pd-Pt core shell nano-particle.
