MICROSCOPY AND ANALYSIS NOVEMBER 201139WHAT'SNEWCIRCLENO. 36 ORONLINE: www.microscopy-analysis.comBruker has introduced the XFlash 5060 T, thelatest addition to the XFlash family of detec-tors for X-ray micro- and nanoanalysis (EDS) inelectron microscopy. The XFlash 5060 T is oneof two detectors available for use on (scan-ning) transmission electron microscopes. Pro-viding 60 mm² active area, it guarantees opti-mum solid angle for the analysis at low beamcurrents and of samples with low X-ray yield.The slender detector end cap and microscope-specific collimator design allow shortestdetector-sample distances and provide a hightake-off angle without requiring sample tilt. Compared to Si(Li) detectors, still commonly usedfor EDS on TEM, the XFlash 5060 T exhibits superiorspeed and drastically lower dead times, providing sig-nificant advantages in collection efficiency, even inlow count rate situations. Additionally, the XFlash5060 T can operate with good energy resolution atcount rates far beyond what any Si(Li) or even com-peting SDD can handle on TEM. The detector is fullyoperational at input count rates of up to 750,000 cps,a big advantage for low-mag high count rate STEMmapping. Also, there is no danger of 'locking up' thespectrometer for minutes when hitting a supportgrid.The superb sensitivity of the XFlash 5060 T allowsdetection of high energy radiation. In combinationwith high-end signal processing electronics andsophisticated software, reliable quantitative analysisof element peaks at 40 kV and above is possible.Large Area EDS Detector for S/TEMBruker's many years of experience in SDD and signalprocessing electronics design, have led to the out-standing energy resolution of the XFlash 5060 T atonly moderate cooling temperatures, enabling reli-able and efficient light element analysis of elementsdown to boron.The XFlash 5060 T, including electronics, is designedto cause minimum interference with all compatibletransmission electron microscopes, conventional oraberration-corrected. Light-weight and with passivecooling, this detector causes minimal strain on the col-umn and introduces no vibrations. The low tempera-ture gradient provides stable measurement condi-tions and the completely non-magnetic detectorhead minimizes beam shift, when moving the detec-tor in or out during TEM operation.Contact: Bruker Nano GmbH www.bruker-nano.comChemical Analysis in the S/TEMFEI, a leading instrumentation company providingelectron microscope systems for applications inresearch and industry, has announced the release ofits Titan G2 80-200 with ChemiSTEM technology, anew member of the Titan G2 series of S/TEM (scan-ning / transmission electron microscopes). "By combining the Titan platform's latest genera-tion of electron optics with the revolutionary analyt-ical sensitivity of ChemiSTEM Technology, we havecreated a microscope which can deliver atomic reso-lution elemental maps in minutes and adds new capa-bilities in addressing our customer's applications inmaterials science, chemistry and nanotechnology,"said Trisha Rice, vice president and general managerof FEI's Research Business Unit.Dr Paul Kotula of Sandia National Laboratories,said: "Our institute chose the FEI Titan G2 80-200 dueto its innovative combination of the latest in probe-correction technology and large solid-angle, win-dowless silicon-drift X-ray detectors (SDDs). We esti-GaAs Atomic EDX in the [110] crystal projection showing 1.4 Angstroms Ga-As dumbbells obtained with Titan G2 80-200 with ChemiSTEM technology. TheGaAs [110] dumbbell splitting of 0.14 nm is clearly resolved by chemical mapping using energy dispersive X-ray analysis with a Titan G2 80-200 with ChemiS-TEM technology and a probe Cs-corrector at 200 kV acceleration voltage, using a 200 pA probe current. On the right hand side the atomic structure of GaAsthe [110] projection is shown along with the grayscale HAADF-STEM image. This represents the highest resolution ever obtained in atomic elemental mappingby any technique using an S/TEM.mate that we willgain a factor of 50 to100 in terms of ana-lytical sensitivity,speed, and spatialresolution com-bined, over our exist-ing FEG analyticalelectron microscope.It is already clear thatatomic resolution X-ray microanalysis is not only possible but practicalwith this new microscope. Once the domain only ofelectron energy loss spectrometry, atomic resolutionmicroanalysis with x-rays gives us access to more ofthe periodic table and the possibility to use existingquantification methods to routinely analyze manymaterials at the highest resolution and sensitivityneeded."
