CAMECA SX-50 ELECTRON MICROPROBE
Function: The Cameca electron microprobe allows chemical analysis of flat, polished samples for Boron and heavier elements. The instrument includes an electron column providing a focused electron beam of less than a micron in size. X-rays are detected either by Energy Dispersive or Wavelength Dispersive spectrometers. A library of standards allows quantitative analyses. Detection limits range from ~50 ppm to ~400 ppm depending on atomic number and matrix. Beam/Stage scanning allow collection of elemental images with micron resolution.
