Abstract

This activity takes advantage of the full remote operation capabilities of the electron microprobe system available through the Florida Center for Analytical Electron Microscopy (FCAEM) at Florida International University in Miami, FL, to introduce students to microprobe analysis through an interactive, whole-class demonstration and exercise. The exercise can be used to provide background and preparation for student use of the electron microprobe in class projects.
