Scanning electron microscopy combined with energy-dispersive X-ray spectrometry is particularly suited to characterizing morphology and elemental composition of individual microparticles. Although not straightforward, quantitative X-ray microanalysis of low-Z-containing particles is achievable using atmospheric thin-window X-ray detectors. A critical aspect of light element analysis is the choice of substrate material. In this work, particles were deposited on specially developed boron… CONTINUE READING
