Combining Measurement Methods: The Benefit of Fast Analytical Instruments
The ultimate goal of every analyst is to get “the most” out of a sample. Bruker offers instruments for many different analytical methods and the instruments have become more powerful and increasingly faster in the past couple of years. This webinar discusses the advantages and limitations of combining 3D µ-XRF, 3D EDS, EBSD, 3D Micro-CT and LA-ICP-MS to analyze a single sample and to investigate as many aspects as possible.

Advanced phase ID using combined EBSD and EDS on SEM
Electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS) are common analytical methods used on the scanning electron microscope (SEM). The two complementary techniques provide structural and respectively compositional information. Continuing to build on its recent developments in integrating EBSD and EDS, Bruker is now releasing an advanced phase identification feature. This new method will significantly increase efficiency when dealing with multiphase materials and allow expert as well as less experienced users to acquire the best quality results.

Combined EBSD and EDS Analysis on SEM
Electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS) are common analytical methods used on the scanning electron microscope (SEM). EBSD provides structural and EDS compositional information. Due to tough requirements on hard- and software for combined analysis, both are mostly used separately or provide quite low acquisition rates. Recent developments in Bruker’s technology enable simultaneous EBSD and EDS analysis with speeds of several hundreds of patterns per second. So why not obtain structural and chemical information at the same time and gain maximum information on a sample?

Developments in quantitative EDS analysis with a focus on light element and low energy peaks
Quantitative EDS analysis has become a standard method in the characterization of samples in the electron microscope. The software shipped with modern energy dispersive spectrometry systems provides good results in automatic analysis modes with little user interaction for many routine applications. However, there may be cases where less satisfactory or even wrong results are obtained. This can have a number of different causes, most common are element peak overlaps, and – nowadays of increasing importance – the necessity to analyze the peaks of elements at low energies. The latter mainly results from the desire to improve spatial resolution of bulk sample EDS analyses by reducing the accelerating voltage of the scanning electron microscope. Thanks to the efficiency and energy resolution of state-of-the-art EDS detectors, analysis of specimens at accelerating voltages of 5 kV or lower within reasonable time has become possible.
