Electron Microprobe Lab (Cameca sx-100)

NASA Lead: Dr. Lindsay Keller (281-483-6090)
JETS Lead: Dr. Anne Peslier (281-244-6714)

The electron probe is outfitted with one energy-dispersive and five wave-dispersive spectrometers with state of the art control software for automation of stage and analytical conditions. Measurements are made on spots as small as one micrometer and can determine elemental abundances to several hundred parts per million for selected elements. Quantitative X-ray elemental maps offer important information on compositional variability of samples.
