Abstract

Maia is an advanced system designed specifically for scanning x-ray fluorescence microprobe applications. It consists of a large array of photodiode detectors and associated signal processing, closely coupled to an FPGA-based control and analysis system. In this paper we will describe the architecture and construction of the system. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
