The Orbis Micro-XRF Elemental Analyzer is flexible and easy to use, offering outstanding performance across the complete range of micro-XRF applications. With Orbis, users can choose spot sizes from 2mm down to 30µm with an easy to use coaxial video/X-ray design to analyze all types of samples. Orbis users can make elemental analyses on small samples such as particles, fragments and inclusions or automated multipoint and elemental analyses on large topographical samples with all the benefits and simplicity of an XRF analyzer. The Orbis incorporates a patented motorized turret integrating video and X-ray optics allowing coaxial sample view and X-ray analysis. This geometry optimizes targeting accuracy and eliminates beam obstruction and shadowing. Primary beam filters can be used with a variety of X-ray optics to allow true XRF analytical capabilities in a micro-spot analysis. The working distance is increased to allow analysis over a rougher sample topography without sacrificing signal intensity. Two additional X-ray collimators can be added to the optical turret to analyze larger areas. The Orbis offers non-destructive air or vaccuum analysis for inorganic elements; minimal sample preparation - no sample coating necessary; improved sensitivity for heavier elements compared to SEM/EDS; coaxial video-X-ray design eliminating beam obstruction and shadowing; large area SDD option for improved sensitivity; and the sample viewport option provides quick view of sample orientation.
