The Microscopy & Microanalysis 2020 meeting is going virtual this year, and we have a whole host of activities going on!
We will be there (virtually) with our brand new, never seen before products: AZtecWave, Symmetry S2, and a new release of AZtecCrystal - all designed to enhance the detection and measurement capabilities for your laboratory research, increase speed to result and provide superior data analysis capabilities.
You can learn more about these ground-breaking new products, as well as all our other M&M activities by visiting the booth or via the tabs below.
If you can’t make it to M&M, you can still live chat with us or request a demo here
At M&M we will be getting involved in various activities, including Spotlight sessions, Bird of a Feather networking events, as well as symposium and poster presentations.
If you can’t make it to M&M, you can still live chat with us or request a demo from the website.

The ground-breaking performance of the world’s first CMOS-based EBSD detector is about to get better.
Offering an acquisition speed of >4500 pps with no compromise on sensitivity, Symmetry S2 delivers routine high-speed analysis on all sample types and excellent data from beam-sensitive materials.
Combining the speed of CMOS with unique fibre optics, proximity sensing, and a software-controlled tilting interface makes the S2 detector the most versatile and powerful on the market.
Symmetry S2 is driven by the power and simplicity of the AZtecHKL data acquisition software and completed by AZtecCrystal, the most modern EBSD data processing platform available, developed to cope with the large datasets generated by CMOS EBSD.
When an EBSD detector has no compromise, no application is beyond your reach.Find out More
AZtecWave lets you combine the unparalleled accuracy of Oxford Instruments AZtecLive EDS technology for element detection and composition determination with the highest spectral resolution WDS to reliably detect and accurately quantify trace or minor elements, even when X-ray lines are heavily overlapped by major element peaks in EDS.
Our unique technology unleashes the power of WDS, without the complexity. Workflows are fully integrated and designed specifically for combined EDS and WDS within the AZtec platform. EDS information is used to automate the WDS set-up to ensure the best results are achieved in the minimum time, working at optimum conditions. Whether you’re working in the fields of metallurgy, electronics, geology, or beyond, AztecWave accelerates your time to results, helping you achieve more in less time, with unparalleled accuracy and certainty.Find out More
The latest AZtecCrystal is the world’s most modern EBSD data processing software and builds on the original product’s success.
Capable of handling the massive datasets commonplace when using the latest CMOS-based EBSD detectors, like Symmetry S2, AZtecCrystal will suit the needs of all levels of EBSD user. For the occasional user, the intuitive interface and intelligent data handling make extracting key information from EBSD datasets a simple process. For the expert, it provides all the advanced tools required to thoroughly interrogate any dataset.
AZtecCrystal now includes numerous high-end developments, such as the calculation of elastic properties of materials and an advanced machine-learning based classification tool, yet it also includes functionality to further improve throughput and ease of use.
Whatever your EBSD data processing needs, AZtecCrystal delivers the answers.Find out More
Join us for our M&M Spotlight sessions. We are performing remote demonstrations of our major new product releases. Symmetry S2 provides an unrivaled combination of speed and sensitivity for those working with EBSD, while AZtecWave makes benefits of integrating EDS and WDS generally accessible. These live 30-minute demos will let you get your first good look at these exciting new technological developments and ask questions of our experts.

We love to share ideas and our Birds of a Feather events are an opportunity to do just that. If you are at M&M and have an interest in any of the topics we’ll be discussing, please join us. We’ll give a presentation to set the scene before opening up the floor to discussion. As well as an opportunity to discuss our enthusiasms with likeminded people, we hope all of us will take away something new.

|Tuesday 4th August||12:00 - 13:00 PM||Correlative Analysis – The Challenges and Benefits of Multimodal Imaging||Louise Hughes|
|Wednesday 5th August||12:30 - 13:30 PM||EDS with No Window – High Resolution, Light Element Analysis of Materials and Biological Samples in the SEM||Sam Marks|
|Thursday 6th August||12:30 - 13:30 PM||Search & Find – Automated Analysis and Live Colour Navigation in the SEM||Matt Hiscock|
From experimental design, through acquisition, to data analysis, using multiple techniques to solve research questions poses many challenges that can quickly dull the initial appeal of correlative analysis. In this session, we will discuss the potential pitfalls of correlative experiments as well as how to extract information from the resulting multi-layered data sets to maximise the rewards of correlating different imaging modalities.
Windowless detectors promote a new form of EDS, opening SEMs to applications that were previously unobtainable. Working with accelerating voltages of ≤ 5kV and extreme sensitivity, windowless analysis enables both surface-sensitive measurements of materials to resolve EDS data at the nanoscale, and rapid imaging of the many light elements within biological samples to complement ultrastructural electron data. In this session, we will discuss the advantages of windowless analysis in contrast to conventional EDS.
With SEMs being able to achieve a wide range of magnifications, information at a multitude of scales is often of interest. We often have to search samples to find particular sites of interest, before going on to characterise complete samples. In this session, we will discuss how the latest generation of EDS hardware and software come together to guide the user through a rapid process of live, colour navigation around the sample, incorporating live chemical imaging as well as enabling large-area automation for characterising complete samples.
Even though we can’t meet face to face, there are still many ways you can find out about how Oxford Instruments can help you with your nanoanalysis challenges. This includes a remote, online demonstration of any products and solutions. If you would like to how our latest generation hardware including EDS, WDS, EBSD, and NanoManipulation perform, please request a demo. We’d be delighted to show you how we can help you achieve your goals.
