On March 19th, (MC)2 hosted a lunch & learn session on EDS analysis, a cornerstone technique in materials characterization, in both SEM and TEM. 

Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy Analysis in Scanning Electron Microscopy and Transmission Electron Microscopy 

When: March 19, from noon to 1:30 pm

Where: South Atrium, NCRC Building 10

This seminar provided a look into the world of EDS analysis, through the journey of x-rays from their generation to collection to quantification. 


Bobby Kerns, (MC)2 Center Manager
Dr. Tao Ma, (MC)2 TEM Scientist

Bobby and Tao have a wealth of knowledge and experience in EDS, and offered insights to (MC)2 lab users into the practical and theoretical aspects of analysis. The seminar was targeted to users who have performed EDS measurements before as well as those entirely new to x-rays.
