Behind the Scenes - Electron Microprobe

Delve into current research at the Center with this new periodic feature, and catch a glimpse of what our students and scientists are working on right now!

Center Assistant Director Devin Schrader is at the University of Arizona's Michael J. Drake Electron Microprobe Laboratory, preparing lunar meteorites for x-Ray element mapping in the Cameca SX100 electron microprobe.  We use x-Ray element maps to identify minerals and determine their abundances.
