Overview

Rave Scientific offers the EM-Tec CXS calibration and reference standards which 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: 

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
