Electron channeling X-ray microanalysis for partially filled skutterudite structure.

Occupancy of Ce atoms on voids and coordinates of Sb atoms in a partially filled skutterudite CeFe6Ni2Sb24 were determined by the method for atomic location by channeling enhanced microanalysis (ALCHEMI), where characteristic X-ray intensities were measured and calculated at various electron incidence directions in a transmission electron microscope.
