MORPHOLOGIC ANALYSIS SEM + EDS
SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPE
The scanning electron microscope helps in analyzing the sample morphology of an element at a microscopic level by verifying its characteristics. Coupled with an EDS (Energy Dispersive X-RAY Spectroscopy), it is used to characterize solid substances and to carry elemental analyses qualitatively. The SEM-EDS becomes fundamental to obtain both a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the alloys as well as the purity of the raw materials.
