FEI Helix Detector (HD) Gaseous Analytical Detector (GAD) and Electron Backscatter Diffraction Detector (EBDD)

Model: 
Helix Detector (HD) Gaseous Analytical Detector (GAD) and Electron Backscatter Diffraction Detector (EBDD)
Make: 

The equipment consists of additional detectors for the Nova NanoSEM: Helix Detector. This is a detector which allows for imaging specimens using the immersion (high resolution) lens in low vacuum mode to obtain ultra-high resolution images of non-conductive specimens. The Gaseous Analytical Back-Scattered Detector has an X-ray cone to reduce spurious beam skirt X-rays, thereby improving the accuracy of X-ray analysis in low vacuum mode. The EBSD system is an upgrade to the EDAX X-ray spectrometer to allow accurate imaging of surface orientation and phase identification.
