Increased Solid Angle (SA) for Optimal Results

The design of the Elite T EDS System provides an optimized geometry to ensure the best possible performance. Solid angles of greater than 2 steradians (sr) are achievable with the dual detector option for select TEM models, which increases count rates and ensures faster data collection on sensitive samples.

Windowless Design

The Elite T detectors are designed specifically not to require the typical protective window in front of the module. This design:

  • Improves the light element sensitivity of the detector
  • Enhances the mapping speed and light element detection in low concentrations
  • Allows flexibility of sensor placement for maximum exposure to the signal


Integrated data acquisition and signal processing electronics
  • Reduces noise for a better signal/noise ratio with improved detection limits
Intelligence built into detector
  • Automatic retraction to safe position without user intervention
Automated calibration algorithm
  • Fast, repeatable, and accurate setup
TEAM™ Software Suite allows users to optimize their analysis time and get the best possible data from their sample
  • Smart Quant - several powerful quantification routines are implemented in the TEAM™ software
  • Smart Track - ensures optimal working conditions on setup
  • EXpert ID - revolutionary one-step peak identification program
  • Smart Mapping - automatically determines collection time required, and identifies the elements present in the sample
  • Smart Drift - monitors and dynamically adjusts parameters to account for drift changes
  • Smart Data Management - increases ease of use and provides simple file management
