AMETEK EDAX has added a new 160 mm2 detector to its Elite T Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) system for transmission electron microscopes. The Elite T EDS System utilises fast Silicon Drift Detectors, now with 70 mm2 and 160 mm2 options and integrated electronics. The geometric design of the Elite T EDS System provides an optimised solid angle that increases the count rates for the best performance with optimal results. The Elite T EDS System includes window-less detectors that are designed specifically not to require the typical protective window in front of the module. This design improves the light element sensitivity of the detector, enhancing the mapping speed and light element detection in low concentrations. It also allows flexibility for placement of the sensor to ensure the maximum exposure to the signal.
