The Electron Microprobe Laboratory, part of the Dutch National Geological Facility (collaboration between Utrecht University, VU University Amsterdam, and Naturalis museum of natural history) is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art JEOL JXA-8530F Hyperprobe Field Emission Electron probe microanalyser allowing improved spatial resolution to volumes below 1 micron (special analytical conditions required). The electron microprobe is mainly used for quantitative analysis of major and minor elements from boron to uranium, down to concentrations of 100 wt ppm. It can also be used for imaging purposes such as: secondary electron images, backscattered electron images, X-ray maps, cathode luminescence.
