AZtecLive  - the next phase in Live Chemical Imaging


Live Chemical Imaging is next phase in the revolutionary AZtecLive Chemical Imaging. It enables you to view a sample’s morphology and elemental distribution, simultaneously and continuously as you move around your sample, delivering a Live Coloured Image with interactive elemental colour key. This allows you to investigate more of your sample quicker or find areas of interest fast. New ColourHiQ takes electron and spectrum image data integration to the next level with super-fast image data processing.

AZtecWave - now with WDS Scan

Our latest release of AZtecWave includes WDS Scan. This new functionality harnesses the highest resolution WDS spectrometer available for the SEM – Wave – to provide certainty on the presence (or absence) of elements affected by peak overlaps in the EDS spectrum, or present in minor-trace concentrations. Unique technology in AZtecWave automatically calculates the scan collection settings based on SEM-WDS conditions and sample composition. A pre-acquisition, theoretical scan provides visual feedback for optimising scan settings further. By providing positive element identification, the resulting qualitative scan also informs the acquisition of accurate, quantitative compositional results. Ultimately, WDS Scan and AZtecWave brings EPMA-like capability to the SEM.
