Electron Energy-Loss Spectrometers

  title={Electron Energy-Loss Spectrometers},
  author={David B. Williams and C. Barry Carter},
Electron energy-loss spectrometry (EELS) is the analysis of the energy distribution of electrons that have interacted inelastically with the specimen. These inelastic collisions tell us a tremendous amount about the electronic structure of the specimen atoms, which in turn reveals details of the nature of these atoms, their bonding and nearest-neighbor distributions, and their dielectric response. In order to examine the spectrum of electron energies we almost invariably use a magnetic prism…

Characterization of non‐Cr‐based deoxidizers on Al alloy 7475‐T7651

The effects of three non‐chromate‐based deoxidizers, namely NaBrO3/HNO3, (NH4)4Ce(SO4)4/H2SO4 and Fe(III)/HF/HNO3, on the Al alloy 7475‐T7651 were investigated. Several analytical methods were

Design and first applications of a post-column imaging filter

We have designed and built an imaging filter which can be attached to most standard TEMs, and is capable of operating at primary energies of up to 400 keV. The filter uses a 90° magnetic sector
