characterisation of materials via energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy

Energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS or EDX) is a chemical micro-analytical technique used in conjunction with scanning electron microscopy (SEM). EDX detects x-rays emitted from the sample during bombardment by an electron beam to characterize the elemental composition of the analyzed area, which can be as low as 1 x 1 μm.

EDX is a very powerful, simple and reliable technique for use in the material composition, identification of contaminants-regulated additives and look for particle agglomerates within the plastics.

At impact solutions we have direct access to a latest technology SEM equipped with an EDX. This one of Impact’s most powerful tools for failure analysis projects.
