Workshop on Electron Probe MicroAnalysis

Who: Vern Robertson, Peter McSwiggen, Three Rivers Microscopy Society
When: 
Tuesday, March 20, 2018 - 9:30am to 3:00pm
Where: 
Benedum Hall

This workshop is sponsored by PINSE/NFCF, JEOL and Three Rivers Microscopy Society (3RMS).  

The workshop will provide an introduction to the world of electron microprobe and also cover some more advanced applications such as low keV analysis and effects of contamination.  Some of these topics are also of interest to EDS users. This workshop is for anyone, and we welcome those who have zero knowledge of EPMA but might be interested in applications to your own research.  EPMA is similar to EDS, but offers more elemental precision, with higher peak to background ratios and easier separation of peaks, plus low to trace level detection. It is a very complimentary technique to many other instruments in NFCF, such as EDS, XRD, Raman, and more!

Complementary lunch will be provided.
