Company Description

EDAX is a leading provider of innovative materials characterization systems encompassing energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS), wavelength dispersive spectrometry (WDS), electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD), and micro X-ray fluorescence (XRF). EDAX products include standalone tools for EDS, EBSD, and WDS, integrated tools for EDS/EBSD, EDS/WDS, and EDS/EBSD/WDS, and a free-standing micro-XRF bench-top elemental analyzer providing small and micro-spot X-ray analysis and mapping. EDAX develops the best solutions for micro- and nano-characterization, where elemental and/or structural information is required, making analysis easier and more accurate. EDAX designs, manufactures, distributes, and services products for a broad range of industries, educational institutions, and research organizations.

Chief Spectroscopic Techniques Supported

  • Energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS)
  • Energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (Micro-XRF)
  • Electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD)
