Analytical methods

Question orientated analyses are the key for success.

  • Light microscopy for the determination of morphological parameters of single particles >2.5 µm in diameter
  • Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) for the determination of morphological parameters of single particles >20 nm in diameter
  • STEM detector for the determination of morphology of particles < 100 nm in diameter
  • Energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) for the determination of the chemical composition of single particles
  • X-ray diffraction for the determination of the mineralogy of the total dust (bulk sample)
  • X-ray fluorescence for the determination of the chemical composition of the total dust (bulk sample)

We offer further numerous systematic analyses in cooperation with our partners.
