MADISON, Wis., Aug. 6, 2010 — Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced a variety of instruments for materials analysis, including the QuasOr EBSD (electron backscatter diffraction), an all-in-one microanalysis solution for the company’s NORAN System 7. The new system combines EBSD with energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) and wavelength dispersive spectroscopy (WDS) capabilities in a single interface. This is designed to ensure ease of use for new users already familiar with EDS and WDS and enables the simultaneous collection of EBSD, EDS and WDS data.
The QuasOr provides high-speed EBSD mapping to determine the crystal structure of samples in a scanning electron microscope and enables simultaneous data collection of WDS and EDS spectral images, improved productivity and reporting, as data collection, analysis and report generation can be done without switching between programs.
The company’s K-Alpha is a fully integrated, monochromated small-spot x-ray photoelectron spectrometer system, and the DXR nanocarbon microanalysis package is a comprehensive set of tools for rapid and accurate characterization of carbon nanomaterials. The K-Alpha system delivers fully automated work flow from sample entry to report generation. Designed for a multiuser environment, reduced cost of ownership and increased ease of use, it is compact and provides accurate performance, making it suitable for existing and new surface analysis applications.
The DXR nanocarbon microanalysis package is a complete system configured for microcharacterization of carbon nanomaterials and features the DXR Raman microscope, software and sampling accessories. The package incorporates the proprietary DXR Raman platform and provides information on the molecular structure and morphology of carbon nanotubes, graphene and other nanomaterials, enhancing productivity during characterization and ensuring accurate, rapid and reproducible results.
