Instrumentation for Energy-Loss Spectroscopy

  • R. F. Egerton


Complete characterization of a specimen in terms of its inelastic scattering would involve recording the scattered intensity J (x, y, z, θ x , θ y , E) as a function of position (coordinates x, y, z) within the specimen and as a function of scattering angle (components θ x and θ y ) and energy loss E. Even if technically feasible, such a procedure would involve storing a vast amount of information, so in practice the acquisition of energy-loss data is restricted to the following categories (see Fig. 2.1).
