TEAMTM Analysis System

To fully understand a material, whether it is naturally occurring or man-made, the scientist often needs to determine the relationships between its physical properties, chemical composition, crystallographic structure and morphology. The seamless integration of energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD), and wavelength dispersive spectrometry (WDS) on the electron microscope allows a direct correlation between the chemical and microstructural aspects of materials.

The Ideal Complement for EDS Analysis

Scanning Modes

WDS scans complement EDS spectrum collection to generate accurate qualitative and quantitative analysis.

Scanning mode options include :

    • Perform a scan over the entire energy range of the spectrometer.
    • Select an energy range to suit the application.
    • Select a region from an EDS spectrum.
    • Peak and background mode for a selection of elements
    • Selected from a periodic table interface.
    • Software suggests diffractor, peak, and background positions.

Smart Focus automatically finds the sample position yielding double the available count rate for WDS.

Smart Focus

Optimize sample position for maximum signal intensity.

A unique feature of the TEAM™ WDS Analysis System is the Smart Focus routine, which automatically adjusts the sample position to optimize the performance of the spectrometer (motorized Z axis control is required). This routine moves the stage in fine increments to find the maximum intensity.

Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis

TEAM™ WDS with Smart Quant can easily generate data for simple qualitative analysis or complex quantitative calculations.

TEAM™ WDS provides the scientist with the tools to achieve the desired accuracy for qualitative and quantitative analysis. EDS and WDS data can be collected simultaneously and overlaid for easy qualitative confirmation. The analyst can select the data source per element (EDS or WDS) for quantitative calculations used to improve precision and detection limits.
