The Phenom ProX desktop scanning electron microscope (SEM) is the ultimate all-in-one imaging and X-ray analysis system. With the Phenom ProX , sample structures can be physically examined and their elemental composition determined.
Viewing three-dimensional images of microscopic structures only solves half the problem when analyzing samples. It is often necessary to collect more than optical data to be able to identify the different elements in a specimen. This is accomplished in the Phenom ProX with a fully integrated and specifically designed EDS detector.
EDS is a technique that analyzes X-rays generated by the bombardment of the sample by an electron beam. EDS elemental analysis is fully embedded into the Phenom ProX system. X-ray detector and control software are combined in one package.
The Element Identification (EID) software package allows the user to program multiple point analysis, and identify any hidden elements within the sample. Additionally, this software can be expanded with elemental mapping functionality. The step-by-step guided process within the EID software helps the user to collect all X-ray results in an organized and structured way.
