Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy

Instrument: Oxford Instruments EDX


Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) is a spectroscopic technique which enables the elemental composition of a sample to be determined.

By linking the technique to scanning electron microscopy (SEM-EDX), sites of interest can be identified based on sample morphology and then the associated chemical composition determined to create an elemental map of the sample.
