Small World Electron Flight Simulator Version 3.1 Software for Modelling of Electron Beam and X-ray
Small World Electron Flight Simulator™ Version 3.1 Software for Modelling of Electron Beam and X-ray Interaction
Hence, for users of non-environmental SEMs, but interested in only the modelling of electron beam and x-ray interactions, you have the chance to "get behind the wheel" so to speak and experience these real-life examples:
Click on the blue links below to see seven examples of actual models run with EFS Version 3.1.
Electron Flight Simulator runs on any IBM compatible PC running under Windows 3.1, 95, 2000 and XP. If your microanalysis system runs on a PC, your can run EFS on it, independently of your EDS or WDS software.
Electron Flight Simulator Version 3.1 Examples:
Image 1: Shows an SiO2 particle on a multilayer semiconductor sample
Image 2: Bulk sample showing the electron trajectories, and generated and emitted x-rays overlayed on each other
Image 3: Cross section view of a 5 layer semiconductor sample
Image 4: Inclusion in a steel sample
Image 5: Spectrum generated with Spectrum Simulator™
Image 6: Effect of high tilt angle on the shape of the interaction volume
Image 7: Electron trajectories display in multi-color mode where each color change shows a 10% drop in energy
Download the demo disk for Version 3.1 and give it a try!
Hold the SHIFT key while clicking above to download demo. But you hold down the shift key momentarily, because once the download window appears, you can release the SHIFT key.
NOTE: When you click on download the demo disk, you will be able to download the file EFSDEMO.EXE. This file will download into a default directory for your browser. You can download it to any directory you specify. Once you download the file, run it by double clicking on it. The file will de-compress into a list of files. From this list, double click on the file SETUP.EXE. This will load the demo into a directory called EFS and create the program icon. Once the program is loaded, double click on the airplane icon to run the program. Please contact us at once if you have any problems with this procedure.
