Del Redfern from Oxford Instruments shows us their X-MAX silicon drift detector, the world's largest area silicon drift detector (SDD). The X-MAX is suited to almost all SEMs and most TEMs and produces the best performance for a SDD with resolution down to 124eV for Manganese and less than 50eV for Carbon. The X-MAX also features high speed analysis, leading to high throughput and excellent data integrity.
