World leader in EPMA
High spatial resolution mapping of precipitates in novel alloys.
The CAMECA EPMA are widely utilized to support the developement of novel alloys. Applying low accelerating voltages (down to 5 keV) with intense beam currents in the SXFive-TACTIS, the electron-sample interaction volume is reduced, and high spatial resolution can be achieved with high X-ray count rates.

X-ray maps of novel Zr-Al-Ti alloys were acquired at 7 keV / 100 nA, wich makes it possible to observe the variation of interface composition around the precipitates, enabling understanding of their formation processes.
