Mineral Chemistry (Microprobe)

SRC’s expert team at the Advanced Microanalysis Centre™ uses an electron probe micro-analyzer (electron microprobe) to perform highly sensitive chemical analyses of micro-volumes of properly prepared samples.

Key Features

  • Imaging using secondary and back-scattered electron detectors and the panchromatic cathodoluminescence (CL) detector
  • X-ray mapping capabilities to visually identify the modal abundance of fine-grained minerals

The electron microprobe at the Advanced Microanalysis Centre™ is available on a fee-for-service basis.
