Applications of scanning transmission electron microscope microanalysis in the study of materials
The dedicatedstem equipped with field emission electron source, affords opportunities for the acquisition of microchemical and microstructural data on a scale approaching the nanometer level. In this presentation, a number of applications of microchemical analysis and microdiffraction to engineering materials will be discussed, with major emphasis on high-strength low-alloy steels, steels for high formability in automotive applications, and aluminium alloys. Some advantages and limitations of the technique are noted, especially for application to analysis of electrochemically prepared thin foils, and to the analysis of extracted particles.
