Initially released in 2005, this publication covers the heavily comparable ideas of electron microprobe research (EMPA) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) particularly from a geological standpoint. issues mentioned comprise: rules of electron-target interactions, electron beam instrumentation, X-ray spectrometry, basic ideas of SEM snapshot formation, creation of X-ray 'maps' exhibiting elemental distributions, approaches for qualitative and quantitative X-ray research (both energy-dispersive and wavelength-dispersive), using either 'true' electron microprobes and SEMs equipped with X-ray spectrometers, and useful issues corresponding to pattern practise and therapy of effects. all through, there's an emphasis on geological points now not pointed out in comparable books aimed toward a extra common readership. The e-book avoids pointless technical element with a purpose to be simply obtainable, and kinds a accomplished textual content on EMPA and SEM for geological postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers, in addition to these operating in commercial laboratories.
