This large area, high collection angle, windowless EDS detector with an oval-shaped 100 mm2 SDD is carefully customized for each suitable pole piece geometry. The unique shape and state-of-the-art slim-line design allow to optimize the acquisition geometry for very specific retrofit conditions as well.
The solid angle for X-ray collection was demonstrated to reach up to 0.7 sr in STEM at over 13° take-off angle providing atom column element mapping and individual heteroatom identification [1,2].
