Elite T EDS System for TEM Applications

The Elite T, the next-generation EDS system for transmission electron microscopy (TEM), employs a fast SDD with state-of-the-art built-in electronics. The unique geometry and powerful quantification routines of the Elite T offer optimized analysis solutions for all TEM applications.

Increased Solid Angle (SA) for Optimal Results

The Elite T EDS System is designed such that it offers an optimized geometry to guarantee the best possible performance. Solid angles above 2 steradians (sr) can be achieved with the dual detector option for select TEM models, which increases count rates and guarantees more rapid data collection on sensitive samples.

Windowless Design

The Elite T detectors are uniquely designed to eliminate the need for the typical protective window in front of the module. This design:

  • Improves the mapping speed and light element detection in low concentrations
  • Enhances the light element sensitivity of the detector
  • Enables flexibility of sensor placement for maximum exposure to the signal


Built-in Data Acquisition and Signal Processing Electronics

  • Minimizes noise for a better signal/noise ratio with enhanced detection limits

Intelligence Integrated into Detector

  • Ensures automatic retraction to safe position without the need for user involvement

Automated Calibration Algorithm

  • Repeatable, rapid, and accurate setup

TEAM Software Suite Allows Users to Optimize Their Analysis Time and Get the Best Possible Data from Their Sample

  • Smart Quant — several robust quantification routines are executed in the TEAM software
  • Smart Track — guarantees optimal working conditions on setup
  • EXpert ID — ground-breaking one-step peak identification program
  • Smart Mapping — automatically calculates needed collection time and detects the elements present in the sample
  • Smart Drift — monitors and dynamically modifies parameters to account for drift changes
  • Smart Data Management — increases user-friendliness and offers simple file management
