Automated Image Acquisition
One can now automatically acquire an analog images either before, after or both before and after each sample acquisition for standards, unknowns and/or wavescans. Be sure that your image parameters (signal type, signal type, AD averages and magnification along with instrument brightness and contrast) are correctly specified before running automation of samples.
Note that there are three magnifications defined in Probe for EPMA: a default magnification which is used for normal operation of the instrument between acquisitions, an analytical magnification which is used to acquire standards, unknowns and wavescans and an imaging magnification which is used to acquire images or for use with beam deflection acquisitions.
This option is useful for automated recording of the sample before beam exposure and again after beam exposure. The acquired images can viewed using the Display, Annotate and Export Images under the Run menu.
