Electron irradiation in a TEM creates X-rays whose energies can be used to identify the elements present in a sample. This talk will cover the generation of X-rays, how X-rays are recorded and how to interpret the resulting spectra. This talk overlaps with some of the material covered in "SEM-based X-ray microanalysis (EDS and WDS)" but will be more focused on TEM. Some understanding of the material covered in the introduction to TEM will be useful.
