What does EMOS mean or stand for ?
An EPMA is determined by using an Electron Probe micro-analyzer which works on a similar technology as the electron microscope.It is used to determine the composition and texture of materials that cannot be analyzed by a regular electron microscope.
It works by shoots a ray of electrons as x rays in a focused beam onto the object with the same wavelength,this easily determining the nature of the material.
