Electron Microprobe Analysis
Tue Jan 7, Thurs Jan 9, Tue Jan 14, Thurs Jan 16, 01-05:00pm, 54-1221
Selection by departmental lottery. Do not pre-register on WebSIS.
Enter lottery by: 03-Jan-2014
Limited to 8 participants.
Level: U 6 units Graded P/D/F

Introduction to the theory of X-ray microanalysis through wavelength and energy dispersive spectrometry (WDS and EDS), ZAF matrix corrections, and scanning electron imaging with back-scattered electron (BSE), secondary electron (SE), elemental X-rays with WDS and EDS, and cathodoluminescence (CL); lab sessions will involve hands-on use of the JEOL JXA-8200 Superprobe. This four-session course is offered for undergraduate credit. However, persons interested in an in-depth discussion of quantitative X-ray analysis are invited to participate. Students will be required to complete lab exercises to obtain credit.

Non-credit activity
No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Single session event

This session is to introduce new users to the JEOL JXA-8200 Superprobe. You will have hands-on experience (if time permits) on our electron microprobe equipped with enhanced imaging capabilities and learn about wavelength and energy dispersive spectrometry, back-scattered electron, secondary electron, cathodoluminescence, and elemental X-ray imaging.
