GSC electron microprobe (15 oxides, incl. SO3)
Geological Survey of Canada electron microprobe analysis-Samples are analysed for 15 different major and minor element oxides.
Mineral analyses of 15 oxides were acquired on a Cameca SX-50 microprobe fitted with 4 wavelength-dispersive spectrometers, with a take-off angle of 40 degrees. The operating conditions were 20kV accelerating voltage and 10nA current, using a focused beam. Count times were 10 seconds on peak and 5 seconds off-peak. The ZAF matrix correction program used was that of Armstrong (1988). Reference standards used were a mixture of natural and synthetic pure metals, simple oxides and simple compounds.
Armstrong, J.T. (1988). Quantitative analysis of silicates and oxide minerals: Comparison of Monte-Carlo, ZAF and Phi-Rho-Z procedures. Microbeam Analysis, p 239-246. A ZAF matrix correction program was used to process the raw data. Reference standards used were a mixture of natural and synthetic pure metals, simple oxides and simple compounds.
