EDS analysis is one of the key applications with a scanning electron microscope. To ensure accuracy in analysis it is important that all detectors are properly  calibrated. Rave Scientific offers the EM-Tec CXS calibration and reference standards. These standards are designed for calibration, resolution testing and performance testing. Each standard contains a selection of reference materials, in the form of element or compounds, optimized for specific calibration tasks. They are available on two types of practical and compact pin stubs:

 

  • Compact Ø12.7mm standard aluminum pin stub with up to 10 elements/compounds.
  • Ø25.4 mm AISI303 stainless steel pin stub for larger numbers of element/compounds. The Ø25.4 mm mounts are compatible with the EM-Tec M26 metallographic. The EM-Tec M26 metallographic mount holder is available with an M4 screw or standard Pin. In the case of the Zeiss short 6mm pin, we suggest the EM-Tec M26, M4 with an M4 to Zeiss Stub adapter.

 


The elements/compounds are all mounted with highly conductive and vacuum compatible silver filled epoxy. The mounts are then polished to ensure that all the elements/compounds are in the same plane. Virtually all standards include a Faraday cup to enable electron probe measurements and monitoring. The calibration standards with non-conductive elements/compounds are carbon coated to ensure conductivity and avoid charging.
The pin stub type standards are compatible with FEI, Philips, Zeiss, Leo, Tescan, Phenom, Aspex, Leica, Cambridge instrument and CamScan SEMs. For using the calibration standards on JEOL and Hitachi SEM, please consult the page with the EM-Tec SEM stub adapters.

The EM-Tec calibration and reference standards are intended for calibration and testing of:
- SEM/EDS systems and/or SEM / WDS systems
- SEM back scattered electron detector (BSD)
- SEM cathode-luminescence (CL) detector
- SEM/Raman system
 -SEM/Micro-XRF systems
- Micro-XRF systems
