Find your ideal SEM with the Industrial Manufacturing Product Selector
The product selector is here to assist you in choosing the most suitable Scanning Electron Microscope system for your research.
The Elemental Mapping Software is an option within the EID software package (that comes default with the Phenom EDX solution). Elemental mapping reveals the distribution of elements within the sample. Here the previously selected elements for the spot analysis can be mapped at a user-specified pixel resolution and acquisition time. The real-time mapping algorithm shows the live build-up of the selected element maps while storing spectra of each pixel. This allows elements to be added or removed at any time during or after the mapping process.
Mapping can be done on the image as a whole, but there is an additional benefit included to save time by adding the Selected Area option. Next to mapping, there is a line scan function which allows analysis over a selected line.
The key lies in the possibility to select each of the following: number of points, dwell time per point and number of passes. On top of that, the results can be easily exported and reported via an automated template.
"Until recently we viewed a drop of blood under an optical microscope. It took three days to fully analyse. Now we put the sample under the SEM and are ready."Learn more
