The Electron Microprobe and Light-Element Analysis
Factors affecting the detection, identification, and determination of the light elements carbon (Z =6) through fluorine (Z =9) by electron microprobe will be discussed. Calibration data for the quantitative determination of carbon in the uranium and carbon titanium—columbium—carbon systems will be presented. Practical applications of the electron microprobe to the detection and identification of nitrides and complex oxyfluorides will be shown.
