A 16 page brochure showing why AZtecTEM is the most powerful solution for EDS on the TEM. It comprises software and hardware sections (inc X-Max 100TLE and X-Max TSR).
AZtecTEM is an innovative EDS software specifically optimised for advanced TEM applications.
AZtecTEM is a unique system approach to the characterisation of materials at the nanoscale. Building on over 30 years Oxford Instruments’ experience in TEM technologies, AZtec is everything you should expect of a next-generation EDS system for TEM.
Often the first step in analysing the sample. With AZtec this is fast, accurate and reproducible - you simply select the areas to analyse then, in the short time it takes to collect a spectrum:
Accurate and reliable, AutoID allows users to identify peaks in real-time as spectra are being collected during the scan.
Automatically keep the field of view locked to the same area. This is of special relevance to STEM when collecting high-resolution images and maps.
Tru-Q is a unique Oxford Instruments’ technology that provides high accuracy AutoID and quantitative analysis. It uses a combination of technologies:
SmartMap spectral mapping brings the benefits of automatic qualitative analysis into two dimensions to identify elements and visualise their distributions.
At the click of a button, AutoLayer takes the often complex information contained in a set of X-ray maps and turns it into a single image that helps visualise both phase and element distribution in the specimen.
Superfast EELS integration delivers accurate simultaneous data acquisition. AZtec is capable of working at speeds well in excess of 1000 spectra per second.
TruMap is a unique real-time mapping solution that removes background and peak overlaps on the fly.
QuantMap displays real quantitative chemical X-ray maps by recalculating SmartMap data to correct for X-ray background, peak overlaps, sample matrix effects and pile up artefacts. QuantMaps can be calculated and displayed on-line - eliminating the need to reprocess SmartMap data off-line.
AutoPhaseMap creates a phase map of the specimen using statistical measures to optimise phase groupings rather than clustering or principle components. It provides an unrivalled qualitative and quantitative analysis of automatically identified phases.
TruLine Incorporates Tru-Q technology to calculate true elemental peak variation from a line scan.
QuantLine displays real quantitative chemical linescans by recalculating SmartMap data to correct for the X-ray background, peak overlaps, sample matrix effects and pile up artefacts.
Maps, linescans and spectra may be reconstructed from previously collected SmartMap or Linescan data. This enables users to:
In (S)TEM it is often desirable to transfer data collected in AZtec to other programmes for further investigation. AZtec gives the capability to transfer data as:
AZtec has true multi-tasking capability, meaning that every second of data acquisition can also be used for processing and reporting.
No matter what your requirements, AZtec will help you present the reports you need in the format you want them.Fast: reporting direct from the interface - a simple right click and data can be e-mailed directly to your customer
