One of the major advantages of the XGT is that it provides superb, seamless operations, from optical image observation to element analysis. In just three easy clicks, you go from a view of the entire sample to specifying the 10 µm point to be measured. All operations, from sample loading to the creation of the final analysis report, are done with natural, intuitive operations.

STEP1. Easy sample loading

  • The sample is loaded into the XGT-5000WR at normal atmospheric pressure.
    No pre-treatment is needed, so analysis can be started quickly.
  • There is no need to make a vacuum in the sample chamber.
  • A series of multiple samples can also be easily analyzed.
Place the sample in the sample holder
Place the sample in the sample holder. There is no need for sample pre-treatment, such as conductivity processing or drying. The measurement position is also specified from the monitor after the sample is loaded into the XGT-5000, so there is no need to worry about sample positioning during loading.
Load the sample holder into the XGT-5000/5100WR
Load the sample holder into the XGT-5000.At this point, there is also no need for XGT-5000 pre-treatment operations such as vacuum drawing, so after the sample holder is loaded, you can proceed right to the measurement position specification operation.

The sample is analyzed at normal atmospheric pressure

The sample chamber is maintained at normal atmospheric pressure, so even samples that would be damaged by a vacuum (samples containing water, living samples, etc.) can be analyzed with no pre-treatment.

STEP2. Quick Positioning using magnified images

  • Just 3 clicks from a view of the entire sample to the start of the analysis of a 10 µm area. started quickly.
  • The CCD image and X-ray beam share the same axis, so measurement positioning is easy and highly accurate.
  • The displayed sample image corresponds exactly to the analysis point, providing greatly enhanced operation efficiency.

Quickly proceed from a view of the entire sample to the selection of the target point

Just three clicks from a view of the entire sample to the selection of the point to be measured.

After the image of the entire sample is displayed on the monitor, you can select the exact point for high-precision 10 µm analysis in just 3 mouse button clicks.

Quickly proceed from a view of the entire sample to the selection of the target point.

Move the sample stage by clicking the optical image

When you need to make minor compensations to the measurement position, simply click the displayed optical image to move the specimen stage. There is absolutely no need for complex device operations.

STEP3. Diverse range of analytical method

  • A diverse range of analytical location specification functions is available for use in multi-point analysis, line analysis, etc.

  • Phase analysis can also be used to analyze the materials in the sample.

  • The XGT-5000WR are also equipped with mapping functions to identify sample materials.

Mapping Start Screen

The area to be mapped is selected while viewing the sample on the monitor.

Multi-Point Analysis

If points are selected for multiple locations, the spectrum at each location can be collected automatically.

Line Analysis

The XGT-5000WR can also perform line analysis, which is effective for analyzing areas such as a sample cross-section.

Line Analysis

Phase Analysis (Option)

Phase analysis is available as an optional function. With phase analysis, the various phases(variety of composition) of a sample are displayed in different colors, based on multiple element maps.

This option is recommended for applications requiring material analysis.

  • Phase Analysis_L
  • Phase Analysis_R

Matching Functions

Data in the memory can be searched for spectrums similar to the current analysis results, and the search results displayed in order of the degree of similarity. Saving data acquired from foreign substances makes it possible to quickly identify new substances.

STEP4. Easy to understand results

  • A wide range of output options is available, including optical image, mapping image, and spectrum.

  • The output layout of the acquired data can be freely arranged.

  • Layout formats can be saved and edited.

Data layout can be arranged freely

Analytical results can be printed, with optical images, spectrums, mapping images, and text freely arranged in the printing layout.

Layout formats can be saved

The XGT-5000WR can save user-set layout formats.

New reports can then be created easily by loading the corresponding formats.

Layout formats can be saved.

Example of a Measurement Results Report

Optical images, fluorescence X-ray images, and transmitted X-ray images can be saved in one file, making it easy to quickly draft analysis reports.
