The Hikari EBSD Camera Series

Hikari EBSD Camera 

The Hikari EBSD Camera Series is the next generation in electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) cameras offering outstanding performance across the complete range of EBSD applications. Users no longer have to choose between speed and sensitivity as the Hikari Camera Series offers both. All the Hikari cameras are HR-EBSD compatible.

The Hikari Series now includes 3 models:
Hikari Pro - up to 600 indexed points per second
Hikari Plus - up to 1,000 indexed points per second
Hikari Super - up to 1,400 indexed points per second

The indexing speed increases between each model are available at all camera resolutions, allowing real acquisition speeds to be achieved on both routine and challenging samples.

Typical uses:

  • High speed analysis for process development and quality control applications
  • High sensitivity indexing with low beam currents and low accelerating voltages when improved spatial resolution is required 

Providing results without compromise, the Hikari EBSD Camera Series blends market-leading speed, sensitivity and precision. When paired with EDAX’s TEAM™ EBSD Analysis System software, the Hikari Cameras offer the highest indexing rates on the market, guaranteeing the user the best possible data quality. 

Features and Benefits

Hikari XP EBSD Camera Deformed Brass
Orientation map created at 1,400 indexed points
per second from a deformed brass sample

Data collection rates up to 1,400 indexed points per second

  • Maps can be collected in minutes for efficient SEM use


Hikari XP EBSD Camera Inconel 100pA
Orientation map collected at 100 pA beam current on an
Inconel 600 superalloy sample

Maximum EBSD camera sensitivity

  • High quality performance across the entire range of SEM operating conditions including:
    • Beam currents as low as 100 pA
    • Accelerating voltages as low as 5 kV


Hikari XP EBSD Camera Orientation Precision Deformed Steel
Misorientation KAM map from deformed steel sample
showing clearer resolution of the deformation structure
with orientation precision 0.1 °

Precision orientation measurements to less than 0.1°

  • Enables detailed microstructural characterization of plastic strain, subgrain evolution, and deformation mechanisms for better understanding of processing-microstructure-property relationships


High indexing success rates

  • EDAX's patented Confidence Index determines not only an indexing rate, but an indexing success rate which provides confidence for your orientation data
  • Know more about every sample by indexing a high percentage of data and avoiding assumptions caused by incomplete measurements


Hikari XP EBSD Camera 650PPS

Integrated Forward Scatter Detector for reviewing sample microstructure prior to performing EBSD scan

  • Provides orientation, composition and topographic contrast imaging for a preview of EBSD prepared samples


PRIAS: The Pattern Region of Interest Analysis System

Compatible with Pattern Region of Interest Analysis System (PRIAS™) Live Imaging

  • High speed Hikari Series cameras can be used as imaging detectors in PRIAS™ Live mode
  • Provides 25 images from pre-defined region of interest (ROI) detectors that can be arithmetically processed to enhance, suppress, or isolate image contrasts
  • PRIAS™ imaging provides synchronous imaging of orientation, phase, and topographic contrasts of EBSD samples


The Hikari EBSD Camera Series are the cameras for all EBSD applications. By combining speed, sensitivity, and precision, they provide performance without compromise. The cameras are fully compatible with EDAX TEAM™ Trident, Pegasus and EBSD Analysis System software packages, helping users solve their materials challenges quickly, easily, and accurately.
