Thermo Scientific have introduced Pathfinder X-ray microanalysis software that process incoming data and provides a real-time statistical map of the chemical constituents within a sample. Compass phase mapping classifies statistically distinct phases and combines ED and WD analysis with structural and morphological information from the electron microscope. A spectral match database automatically identifies and maps analysed regions, whilst algorithms for background subtraction, peak deconvolution and quantitative analysis help provide accurate data analysis. A set of 29 image filters provide new data enhancement tools to provide users with a clear picture of their SEM/EDS and SEM/WDS data.
