The addition of Wavelength Dispersive Spectrometry (WDS) to the TEAM™ Analysis System streamlines three microanalysis routines - energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and WDS - into one interface and provides the maximum materials insight quickly and easily.
The TEAM™ WDS Analysis System pairs TEAM™ software with a parallel beam WDS spectrometer. To complement EDS analysis for light element work, or where elemental overlaps cause serious problems, the microanalyst often employs a wavelength dispersive X-ray spectrometer (WDS). The improved resolution and higher sensitivity of WDS deconvolutes peak overlaps and effectively exposes trace elements, providing the user with a clear picture of sample chemistry. Both qualitative and quantitative analyses can be run.
