Electron Microprobe (EPMA)


Electron Microprobe (EPMA)

The Electron Microprobe is a tool for the non-destructive compositional analysis of small volumes of solid material.  Equipped with several Wavelength-Dispersive x-ray spectrometers (WDS), the microprobe is capable of significantly enhanced spectral resolution and minimum detection limits compared to Energy Dispersive analysis.  Compositional mapping is also available.
