Possible applications:

  • Determination of the elementary composition of samples
  • Analysis of the diffusion progress at the transition point of different materials, i.e. measurement of intermetallic phases
  • Detection of the curve behaviour of intermetallic phases
  • Homogeneity of materials

Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis (EDX)

For questions regarding the specific composition, the structure of layers and the metallizations the EDX system in combination with the scanning electron microscope provides a detailed statement about the containing elements, their localization in the sample as well as the age of the components respectively their suitability for storage.

Consequently, the concentrations of metals can be determined qualitatively and quantitatively along a freely defined line of a microsection and can be recorded in charts.

The result is an accurate statement of how the materials are already diffused into each other and, where appropriate, a further storage or processibility is still safe respectively if improper materials, such as for instance lead, are present.
