SEM-EDX is powerful in problem-solving instruments with variety of possible applications.
Some of the common applications include:
- Determination of elemental composition of material or particles down to sub-micron level
- Distribution of elemental composition of a material across a microscopic surface, and determination of corrosion or oxidation.
- Measuring plating thickness
- Inter-diffusion layers between metals
- Explosive particles analysis
- Abrasive particles analysis
