COMPASS (Multivariate Analysis) and Xphase (Phase Analysis) Analysis of a Complicated Alloy (Application Note 51220)


XPhase, is created around the strength of the COMPASS map and the quantitative map, and produces binary extraction images. These map images are used to extract compound spectra directly from the spectral imaging data set. By processing the analytical results of the COMPASS and XPhase together, location and quantitative analysis of each phase is performed. By using COMPASS and XPhase together each phase can be located and analyzed quantitatively.

Note: a solid foundation of Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy theory and practical application is required to get optimal results of these advanced analytical tools.
