Dr Jeff Chen from Australian National University will take you through an introduction to Electron Probe X-Ray Microanalysis (EPMA) at 2pm AEST (4:00am GMT) on the 16th of June.
EPMA is commonly used to determine the compositions of mineral phases in geological samples but is also used where quantified compositional information is required e.g. metal phases within welds, zoning or compositional variations across minerals or within mineral phases. It is a powerful analytical tool with superior X-ray energy resolution than the commonly used energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS).
This webinar is aimed at researchers and requires an understanding of what an SEM is and how it works. If you would like to brush up before the talk you can access our free online module on SEM in MyScope.
