Investigating a Low Symmetry Phase Material

Analyzing low symmetry phases, often contained in mineralogical samples, is sometimes considered challenging. Samples of this type require either conductive-coating or that the SEM low vacuum mode is used. Both affect pattern quality.

This application example of a plagioclase (triclinic) shows that even samples of this kind can be analyzed with sufficient quality results. Here a hit rate of 89.6 % could be reached without data cleaning.
