Abstract

With the advent of parallel collection systems, electron energy loss spectroscopy in the scanning transmission electron microscope provides a potentially viable tool for the characterisation of ultrafine aerosol particles. An investigation has been conducted into the application of the technique. Results show it to offer superior light element characterisation of nm particles to energy dispersive X-ray analysis, over comparable data acquisition times. Assuming the development of automated data collection and analysis systems, the technique should allow the complete characterisation of ultrafine particles when used in parallel with other analytical signals available in the scanning transmission electron microscope.
