An Overview of X-Ray Spectroscopy
The purpose of this book is to discuss X-ray microanalysis and computer-aided imaging at a level that promotes an understanding beyond merely “how-to” texts, but without overwhelming the reader with volume or complexity. No attempt is made to replace a full textbook for either technique. Rather, this volume is meant to be an introduction for newcomers to the fields and a reference for experienced microscopists to be reviewed as needed. More in-depth texts and articles, which include derivations of the mathematical relationships, are given as references for those who desire such information. Several tables and diagrams of relevant information are provided for quick reference.
