TEAM™ 3D Imaging and Quant (IQ)
A 3D rendering of a hybrid display containing Cd-L as magenta dots, S-K as an orange volume, and O-K as a blue transparent volume. Note the sharp interface between each of the volumes.
TEAM™ 3D IQ is a 3D solution for Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) data, which performs both imaging and analysis operations within the same package. In the past, 3D visualization software has focused on taking a stack of image slices through a sample to produce a 3D volume. Elemental maps could be displayed simultaneously by color coding according to intensity. The usual rotate, tilt and zoom functions designed for simple images were adapted for elemental maps, but provided little additional interpretative information.
EDAX has now partnered with a sister company within AMETEK to provide TEAM™ 3D IQ:
- To bring quantification to your visualization
- To add a dimension to your materials characterization
- To offer a seamless interface with TEAM™ EDS software for optimal results
- To give a full suite of 3D thresholding tools to define regions of interest
With TEAM™ 3D IQ, developers have extended the source of typical 3D EDS data sets from simple elemental maps to full spectral imaging data sets for each slice. When sub-sets of the data are extracted for interpretation, a complete spectrum is also extracted, from which full quantification can be performed.
