WDS X-ray Mapping

Understanding the spatial distribution of elements in solid materials is critical in many material science applications. Using electron microprobe, areas ranging from a few tens of microns to multiple centimeters can be easily and rapidly mapped.

WDS Qualitative Analyses

Often when characterizing materials simply understanding the chemical constituents present within the material is critical. EPMA is one of the quickest and most accurate methods by which to determine the elements present within a solid material.

Cathodoluminescence (CL) Mapping and Analyses

Our electron microprobe is equipped with a state-of-the-art xCLent Hyperspectral cathodoluminescence spectrometer. This system is sensitive to radiation covering the entire visible light spectrum (400-850 nm) with a total detectable wavelength range from 200 (UV) to 950 nm (near infra-red).
