Electron-Probe X-Ray Spectrograph: Design, Evaluation, and Application

  • J. D. Brown (a1), J. W. Thatcher (a1) and W. J. Campbell (a1)


The Bureau of Mines purchased the electron optics, vacuum system, and sample stage assembly for the electron-probe X-ray spectrograph and designed and built the two reflection and two transmission scanning curved-crystal spectrometers. The reflection spectrometers were placed in a vacuum chamber for measurements of long-wavelength X-radiation. Operational characteristics of this spectrograph were determined. A low-alloy stainless-steel sample containing 5 wt. % depleted uranium and a stainless-steel sample containing 20 wt. % gadolinium were analyzed.
