ENERGY DISPERSIVE X-RAY SPECTROSCOPY (SEM-EDS) SERVICES
Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (known as EDS, EDX, EDXS) can be coupled with SEM to generate composition maps: EDS relies on the interaction of a source of X-ray excitation and a sample to determine local elemental composition. The surface of the sample can be scanned with resolution comparable to that of SEM (although not as high) to produce a composition map.
MEASUREMENTS COMMON WITH SEM-EDS:
- Surface imaging
- Elemental composition (spots and mapping)
