Designed to dramatically improve elemental analysis capabilities for a broad range of applications, the new SDD 1000 detector for the Thermo Scientific ARL QUANT’X EDXRF spectrometer utilizes a 1,000-micron silicon crystal, more than double the thickness of silicon drift detectors on the market.
The multi-purpose ARL QUANT’X EDXRF (energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence) spectrometer fitted with the SDD
1000 detector provides four times higher count rate and better resolution than the instrument’s previous detector, offering improved limits of detection and three times faster measurement. The thickness of the state-of-the-art silicon crystal provides enhanced sensitivity for the detection of heavy elements. Its larger active area provides better performance for lighter to heavier elements.
Key Applications: Environmental, electronics, automotive/machinery, mining, forensics, cement, slags, oil and petrochemicals, paints and polymers, gemology.
Improved limits of detection: Wider range of elemental analysis across the periodic table
Faster performance: Rapid, accurate analysis of small and large samples (2 mm to 30 cm)
Quick start-up: Spectrometer with SDD
1000 detector can be stopped overnight and re-started in less than three minutes Broader active area: Captures more photons for better analysis
