The ELDICO ED-1 device is dedicated solely to electron diffraction (ED, also known as 3D-ED, microED or electron diffraction tomography).
With a disruptive horizontal design and an innovative sample-handling mechanism, ELDICO ED-1 will help scientists enter the field of nano-crystallography and produce important structural information faster, with better quality and at lower cost. With this addition, any crystallographic lab will be able to perform routine analysis on samples that have so far been considered prohibitive – including nanocrystalline powders, minute quantities and phase mixtures.
Running at 160 kV – optimal for reduced dynamic scattering and enabling diffraction also from thick samples; no ultra-high vacuum required; long-lifetime LAB6 cathode; auto-calibration routine
Dedicated design to facilitate operation with a single click and improve diffraction performance; extra low dose for longer sample lifetime; user-friendly
Enables selection and alignment of any crystal on a sample grid; keeps the crystal in the beam for 140° of rotation; high-speed motors reduce the accumulated dose during sample alignment, evaluation and measurement
For sample alignment and evaluation, based on still images for longer sample lifetime; optimal resolution for detecting and aligning even the smallest of samples
Based on the latest hybrid-pixel technology from DECTRIS, enables accurate measurement of even the weakest diffraction; dose can be reduced extremely fast, thus extending sample lifetime — enables data up to atomic resolution
Guarantees ultimate ease-of-use, including all common features from X-ray diffraction, allows for a steep learning curve — enables switching between pre-set imaging and diffraction mode within seconds
No special installation requirements, always tuned to diffraction; no need to share instrumentation with colleague microscopists; high sample throughput; best data available for nm-sized samples
