The EDAX Neptune analysis system integrates energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and wavelength dispersive spectroscopy (WDS) analytical techniques into one platform, harnessing the versatility of EDS alongside the accuracy, resolution, and detection limits of WDS.
These techniques can be applied individually or merged to yield unprecedented results. By combining data, previously unattainable outcomes become achievable. Together, they enhance X-ray microanalysis capabilities, offering solutions to intricate analytical challenges.
The EDS analysis component equips users with a comprehensive set of tools, ranging from basic qualitative analysis to advanced quantitative calculations. WDS scans complement EDS spectrum collection, enabling precise quantitative and qualitative analysis.
Furthermore, the Neptune system incorporates Octane Elite silicon drift detectors (SDDs) featuring silicon nitride (Si3N4) windows, providing exceptional performance in light element detection and low energy sensitivity.
These SDDs facilitate rapid data collection with outstanding resolution and market-leading throughput count rates, ensuring optimal analysis and enhanced productivity. Additionally, the system offers Lambda Plus and Lambda Super spectrometers for WDS applications.
