Problems in elemental imaging with an ion microprobe mass analyser
- 30 Downloads
Imaging of surfaces which are in part non-conductive with an ion microprobe mass analyser can result in incorrect patterns of elemental distributions for those elements which sputter as both positive and negative ions. The recorded intensities of sputtered ions are shown to depend on the polarity of the incident and of the emergent ions.
