Quantitative EDS Explained: How to achieve great results

Webinar: Watch on demand

This webinar explains the science behind the Oxford Instruments technologies and algorithms, as well as, how to achieve accurate, un-normalized quantitative results using an Oxford Instruments EDS system and the ‘standardless’ approach. Additionally, the use of EDS to produce high-quality results using Oxford Instruments software with a standard-based method will be explained, with published examples from the field of Earth Science.
