Beam Broadening Effects in STEM/EDS Measurement of Radiation-Induced Segregation in High-Purity 304L Stainless Steel

Proceedings of Microscopy & Microanalysis-97, Cleveland Ohio, Aug. 11-15, 1997. Pub. Spring Verlag, Ed. Baily, Dimlich, Alexander, McCarthy:
Authors: J.T. Busby , T.R. Allen , E.A. Kenik, N.J. Zaluzec , and G.S. Was;
This document presents the Materials Science research results obtained using the Electron-Beam Characterization Facilities of DoE/BES which is part of the DoE2000 / MMC. It involves 3 remote locations, (ANL, ORNL, and the Univ. of Michigan) and employed the following tools: TelePresence Microscopy, Video Conferencing, and Electronic Notebooks. This WWW document is a copy of the presentation given at the Microscopy and Microanalysis 97 Meeting, in which the authors describes the optimum conditions for characterization by high spatial resolution microanalysis of segregation to grain boundaries in 304L Stainless Steel. The work makes use of the MMC tools, but does not report on any hardware and/or software development.
