TEM/STEM EDS detector Quantax

Once again Bruker sets standards in performance and functionality in energy-dispersive spectrometry for the transmission and the scanning transmission electron microscope. The new generation of QUANTAX EDS features the XFlash® 6T detector series with active areas of 30 mm2 and 60 mm2 for TEM and STEM.

  • Generation 6 provides the hardware and software technology to deliver the fastest and most reliable results:
  • Save time – new slim-line technology detectors, large area SDDs, and high performance pulse processing get the job done faster
  • Save effort – motorized detector movement and light weight design make detector handling easier. Low electromagnetic and mechanical interference minimize the influence on instrument performance
  • Gain precision – best energy resolution provides the highest quality spectra for precise analysis
  • Gain reliability – the world’s most comprehensive atomic database ensures correct peak identification also at low energy
  • Gain accuracy – sophisticated algorithms for quantification provide accurate results
  • Gain information – integration with complimentary techniques, such as EELS, is supported
