Forward Scatter Detector (FSD)

The Forward Scatter Detector is aideal analytical tool for previewing the microstructure to select a region for EBSD data collection and for qualitatively inspecting the microstructure to characterize deformation and strain gradients critical to materials design.

The Hikari Plus and Super electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) cameras come standard with an integrated forward scatter detector (FSD). The Hikari Pro and DigiView EBSD cameras can be upgraded with a forward scatter detector (FSD) for characterizing material and mineral microstructures in the SEM.
