Mineral Identification with EDS Mapping

With the EDS mapping it is easy to identify the different elements, and so minerals present in the sample - even grains with similar BSE intensity can be chemically distinguished.

By downloading this application note, you will learn:

  • The analysis of minerals in a rock sample
  • How to differentiate mineral phases with similar mean Z numbers
  • The true mineral species via the element combinations seen in the EDS X-ray maps
