I've acquired EDS maps during SEM analysis using an Oxford EDS device. Quantifying Carbon using EDS on an SEM is near-impossible as most samples are either coated with carbon or carbon gets sputter deposited by the e-beam during analysis. The energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) technique is mostly used for qualitative analysis of materials but is capable of providing semi-quantitative results as well. Performing EDS quantitative analysis with standards is the third method, wherein the assumption is the accuracy of WDS is better than that of EDS. 103 203–207. The energy of these lines is nearly independent of the chemical of the bonding state affected atoms; the electron probe microanalysis (EPMA) is … Quantitative EDS analysis following the k‐ratio protocol can match WDS for the accuracy and precision with which the characteristic X‐ray intensities are measured with a dose that is lower by a factor of 3–60 depending on the particular instrument configuration, even when severe peak overlap occurs and a large concentration ratio (>20:1) exists for the mutually interfering peaks. Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDXS), also known as EDX Analysis and EDS Analysis, is a qualitative and semi-quantitative X-ray microanalytical technique that can provide information about the elemental composition of a sample.
