WDS information is collected with a specific crystal detector that is rotated through the range where each specific element’s diffraction wavelength is found. Different crystals are also used for different wavelength ranges and the geometry of the primary beam, sample and crystal are important for proper detection and collection of the information. WDS is much slower than EDS, but is generally one order of magnitude more sensitive than EDS. As a result, both techniques can nicely complement each other, as they have different Methods in Conservation 23 Figure 8 SEM and dot mapping of inclusions in glass strengths and weaknesses, to produce a more accurate composition of the sample.
