Forward Scatter Detector (FSD)

The Hikari XP electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) camera comes standard with an integrated forward scatter detector (FSD) and DigiView can be upgraded with an FSD for characterizing material and mineral microstructures in the SEM.

  • Adjustable detector insertion provides multiple imaging
  • Contrasts
  • Unique imaging capability for your EDAX EBSD system
  • Orientation contrast
  • Topographical contrast
  • Compositional contrast
  • Quality display of deformation and strain gradients
  • Enhanced imaging functionality within OIM™ software
