Chemical analysis in the scanning electron microscope and electron microprobe is performed by measuring the energy and intensity distribution of the x-ray signal generated by a focused electron beam. The subject of x-ray production has already been introduced in the chapter on electronbeam-specimen interactions (Chapter 3), which describes the mechanisms for both characteristic and continuum x-ray production. This chapter is concerned with the methods for detecting and measuring these signals as well as converting them into a useful form for qualitative and quantitative analysis.
