The Octane Elect SDDs incorporate a silicon nitride (Si3N4) window, high speed electronics and a manual slide. They can be combined with one of EDAX's Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD) cameras as part of the Pegasus EDS-EBSD Analysis System, providing seamless integration for both elemental composition and crystal structure analysis in one easy-to-use package. For more information, please visit the TEAM™ Pegasus EDS-EBSD Analysis System page.
The Octane Elect SDDs are available in 2 models:
Octane Elect Plus - 30 mm2 chip
Octane Elect Super - 70 mm2 chip
Best Light Element Performance
The Octane Elect SDD with a Si3N4 window offers major transmission improvements compared to detectors with a polymer window, leading to greatly improved light element performance and significantly more critical data for the materials analyst.
Low kV Performance
The mechanical properties of silicon nitride allow the use of thinly fabricated windows with a low aspect ratio support grid, offering a great benefit in terms of low energy sensitivity and optimal low voltage analysis.
