Detector Technology

Detector Technology

Cascade Current Detector (C2D)

  • Achieve the best imaging performance in variable pressure mode with advanced detector technology
  • EVO’s Cascade Current Detector (C2D) with its high sensitivity detector electronics ensures you acquire outstanding, low-noise images even in the most demanding VP applications.
  • The Extended Range Cascade Current Detector (C2DX), unique to the EVO Series, is designed to provide superb imaging performance at the highest pressures up to 3000 Pa.
  • EVO detector technology sets the standard for Variable Pressure and Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy

Integrated EDS Solution: EVO Element

High definition imaging meets low energy analytics

EVO Element is an integrated EDS solution with high usability and low-kV sensitivity. The integration improves usability by using only one PC to control both the EDS and the SEM. At the same time, parallel control is possible by having dedicated user interfaces for microscope and EDS control.

  • Integration: High definition imaging combined with fast analysis for best results at highest usability
  • Customization: Customizable software for different user needs
  • Sensitivity: Unique Silicon Nitride window enhances low energy detection

Applications

Use the flexibility and analytical imaging of your EVO for a wide range of applications including:
