Micro-XRF on SEM

Metal and Alloy Identification

The sensitivity of micro-XRF makes it very suitable for the identification and analysis of alloys, particularly for small particles, e.g. debris from engine wear and similar. This application example shows the identification of a small part of a copper alloy as yellow brass (CuZn33) through quantification of the XRF spectrum. The trace element sensitivity of QUANTAX Micro-XRF allows also to safely identify complex alloys containing many different elements also in low concentrations.
