Using a large sensor means:

  • Productive count rates at low beam currents
  • Maximising imaging performance and accuracy
  • No need to change imaging conditions for X-ray analysis
  • Significantly higher count rates at the same beam current
  • Shorter acquisition times
  • Better statistical confidence
  • Practical analysis with small beam diameters
  • Maximising spatial resolution
  • Getting the best out of your high resolution TEM


Size matters, sensitivity counts

Under the same operating conditions, bigger detectors:

  • Will do in seconds what used to take minutes – mapping can be an everyday tool
  • Will dramatically improve precision for the same acquisition time

Large Area detectors – high-speed microanalysis is routine for all.


Low energy matters, sensitivity counts

X-MaxN 80 TLE is optimised for low energy performance - the performance can be 3x better than the X-MaxN 80T

Windowless versus window performance in the TEM

A comparison between window and windowless configurations of the X-MaxN for TEM.


Size matters, spatial resolution counts

High spatial resolution conditions give low X-ray yield.

  • Large area detectors collect high quality low energy spectra in practical time scales
  • Nanoscale features can be better characterised

Very Large Area detectors – advanced nanoanalysis is possible for all.
