SDD-type EDS detectors for all SEM and TEM microscopes
SDDs, Silicon Drift Detectors without liquid nitrogen, are up to 10 times faster than conventional detectors that require liquid nitrogen cooling. They can retain a resolution of up to 100,000 signal pulses. SDDs take measurements to a whole new dimension: for example, elements can be mapped in just a few minutes. The detectors are electrically cooled, and they can be heated and cooled at the push of a button. Thermo offers various types of SDDs.
- Resolution from 123 eV upward
- Window area options: 10, 30, 60 and 100 mm2
- Measuring rate: up to 1,000,000 signal pulses per second
- Multiple EDS detectors can be connected to the same microscope
