Be it solid state or scintillation Backscattered Electron (BS) detectors, Cathodoluminescence, STEM or MCP detectors, K.E. Developments has the product to suit you, many are available in fixed, motorised or bellows sealed formats.
Solid State Backscattered Electron Detector
This state-of-the-art Backscattered detector uses a large silicon diode exclusively manufactured for KED to our own specific design and characterised for electron detection. It is highly compact, with a four quadrant annular construction, which achieves almost perfect symmetry virtually eliminating topographic information and producing a pure compositional signal. However, if topographic information is required, the ability to select quadrants allows this to be done.
Motorised Backscattered Electron Detector
The K.E.Developments Motorised Backscattered Detector is fitted with 3 individual operating positions allowing the use of the detector and a Faraday Cup as well as the fully retracted position. Alignment of the two detector positions is normally better than 20um. Its main application is for detector assemblies that are mounted in inconvenient places, often behind the electron optical column. Its use is invaluable in systems used in hazardous environments such as”hot cells”. A Bellows version is also available.
- Remote Retraction of detectors
- Precision Detector Alignment, <20um
- Three Positions Possible
Centaurus: “The Complete Detector System”
Designed as a scintillation type BS detector, this innovative product can generate either compositional or topographic images. With a quickly removable tip, it can be converted to a Cathodoluminescence detector in seconds giving an additional function for little extra cost, without compromising the quality of the results obtained. It also gives excellent images at low kV - ideal for those studying fragile and beam sensitive samples. Given its simple conversion, we believe that you will agree CENTAURUS is indeed ‘The Complete Detector System’.
- Excellent low kV performance
- Good atomic number resolution
- High spacial resolution
- Operates at all pressures
- Composition or topography
- - Sensitive CL detector
- - 300-650nm standard
CENTAURUS Detector Motorised Bellows variant
The K.E. Developments Motorised Bellows CENTAURUS Detector has all the functions of the standard retractable model. Its main application is for detector assemblies that are mounted in inconvenient places, often behind the electron optical column. Its use is invaluable in systems used in hazardous environments such as”hot cells”. A Bellows version is also available.
