EDS on FE-SEM is working!

February 20, 2013. The EDS hardware card came back from the repair shop – I installed and calibrated it this afternoon. I tested it for 2 hours – EDS Spectra, SEM Imaging and X-ray Mapping. Everything seems to be working properly.

Some of you have been trained to use the EDS system back before Christmas. I’d like to go over it again with you before you use it. Since then, others haven’t been trained at all because the system was down. You need to be trained too.

Please let me know right away if you see anything unusual.
