The INCA WAVE WDS spectrometer is the only WDS spectrometer available for SEM that uses the same fully focussing geometry as used in EPMA. This means 2x better resolution and more stable and reproducible measurements.

WAVE is a fully focussing spectrometer renowned for its engineering precision and quality. The internal components of the spectrometer (crystal, detectors and goniometer) function in complete harmony and with ultra-high precision so that the correct diffraction conditions are maintained - and measurements are reproducible.

  • Accurate vertical positioning of the sample is not critical because the spectrometer is mounted with the Rowland circle horizontal and inclined. This makes reproducible results easy to collect for all users. It also eliminates the need for an optical microscope for 'setting up', which is required by parallel beam spectrometers.
  • Spectral resolution as low as 2eV making the separation of closely spaced X-ray lines simple
  • Excellent detection limits, which are less than 100ppm for many elements
  • Energy range up to 10.8keV as standard (15keV as an option)
  • Accurate quantitative analysis using the XPP matrix correction algorithm
  • Reliable and robust mechanical design, which has been developed over 25 years
  • Successful installations on a wide range of SEMs, conventional, variable vacuum, environmental, field emission
  • Proven results on many types of samples, including light elements, and high spatial resolution using low beam currents (<5nA)
