The CAMECA SX100 is equipped with five WDS spectrometers containing 14 diffracting crystals which allow analysis of all elements with Z ≥ 5 (boron). Three of the spectrometers are equiped with large LPET and LLIF crystals which provide more counts and better peak-background ratios than do normal sized crystals of the same type.
