This book discusses the model for quantitative electron probe analysis. Organized into 14 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the various kinds of microanalysis followed by a discussion of the advantages that can be derived from using the electron probe method. This book gives a comprehensive account of both experimental and theoretical aspects of electron microprobe analysis, and is an extensively updated version of the seminal first edition. The book gives an excellent o v e r v i e w of theoretical and instrumental aspects of electron microprobe analysis. A substantial part of the book is devoted to mathematical correction procedures, reflecting, no doubt, a particular area of interest to the authors. However, other instrumental aspects are adequately covered. Image analysis in the scanning electron microprobe analyser by use of a suitable digital scan drive/computer interface to an LSI 11/23 computer and dual Mbyte hard disc system is described. The image processing of × pixel and grey level resolution is performed to obtain size and particle coordinate positions.

Electron microprobe analysis is a nondestructive method for determining the chemical composition of individual mineral and material grains. An electron microprobe uses a high-energy focussed beam of electrons to generate X-rays characteristic of the elements within a sample from volumes as small as 5 micrometers in diameter.

For students who plan to use electron microprobe results as a major part of their thesis research, I would recommend purchasing Reed, Originally published in , this book covers the closely related techniques of electron microprobe analysis (EMPA) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) specifically from a . This volume is the second edition of a well-appreciated textbook that professor S.J.B. Reed first prepared in (of the same author see also Electron Microprobe Analysis and Scanning Electron Microscopy in Geology, , Cambridge University). Its aim is mainly educative, describing the characteristic features of the instrumental apparatus. Originally published in , this book covers the closely related techniques of electron microprobe analysis (EMPA) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) specifically from a geological viewpoint. Topics discussed include: principles of electron-target interactions, electron beam instrumentation, X-ray spectrometry, general principles of SEM image formation, production of X-ray 'maps' showing elemental distributions, procedures for qualitative and quantitative X-ray analysis .
