Electron Probe MicroAnalysis (EPMA): is an analytical tool used to determine the chemical composition of small volumes of solid materials.
The sample is bombarded with an electron beam, emitting x-rays at wavelengths characteristic to the elements being analyzed.
This enables the assessment of the amount of elements present within small sample volumes (typically 10-30 μm3).

TRAINING REQUIMENTS:
Qualify as an independent user of the SEM 6400. Latest Status Log EntryJun 27, 2017 - User Note: It is only available with staff assistance.
