      EDS Spectrum Analysis and Background Modeling

      While the characteristic peaks in EDS spectra are usually the focal point of any spectral analysis, the background signal and Bremsstrahlung also carry significant information about the sample and analysis conditions. Various models and filters are used to separate the background from the characteristic peaks with each having their advantages and drawbacks. In this presentation by Dr. Jens Rafaelsen, we go through some of the basics of EDS signal generation and detection in order to discuss the merits of the different approaches to the background signal and what information it can give us.

    • Dynamic EBSD Pattern Simulation
      Dynamic EBSD Pattern Simulation

      Kinematical based simulation has helped move EBSD forward but lacks the ability to realistically capture the intensity of the bands in the patterns. In recent years, significant strides have been made to improve the simulation of EBSD patterns using a dynamical model of diffraction. The ability to more accurately simulate diffraction has helped advance EBSD development in several ways. In this presentation, we will briefly describe dynamical simulation of diffraction and three specific applications based on dynamical diffraction: reflector optimization, dictionary indexing, and background generation.

    • EBSD Analysis of Beam Sensitive Materials by Direct Detection
      EBSD Analysis of Beam Sensitive Materials by Direct Detection

      EBSD pattern collection on beam-sensitive materials is limited by the beam current and accelerating voltage that can be applied without damaging the crystal structure. In this webinar, we will use a Clarity™ detector to explore the minimum number of electrons required to produce indexable diffraction patterns as a function of backscatter coefficient, fraction of diffracted electrons, and accelerating voltage. In many cases, indexable patterns can already be obtained using beam currents in the pA range with less than 20 electrons per pixel. When the obtained diffracted intensity is still insufficient to get good indexing, the quality of extremely poor patterns can be enhanced using NPAR™ by considering adjacent EBSD patterns without the need to increase the beam current. Unmatched performance for low-dose mapping will be illustrated with examples of biominerals and perovskite photovoltaic materials, along with applications in lithium battery technology and more.
