I have a question about the EDS
I don't understand how the detector can differentiate the Energy of incident x-ray simultaneously.
In my thought, the emitted x-ray from the sample have different energies and
It reaches the detector simultaneously in general.
So the current made by that x-ray photon bunches is gathered
It's impossible to differentiate the energy of each x-ray photon.
Am I wrong?
But the data of EDS shows the histogram of dispersive energy of emitted x-ray.
Plz let me know what I am wrong.
