Forward Scatter Detector

The Forward Scatter Detector is an ideal analytical tool for previewing the microstructure to select a region for EBSD data collection and for qualitatively inspecting the microstructure to characterize deformation and strain gradients critical to materials design.
Forward Scatter Detector

The Hikari Super, Velocity™ Plus, and Velocity™ Super electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) cameras come standard with an integrated forward scatter detector (FSD). The DigiView EBSD camera can be upgraded with a FSD for characterizing material and mineral microstructures in the SEM.
