Register Today: How PCA Eliminates Errors and Saves Time
In our next 20-minute topic in X-ray microanalysis, we explore mapping apatite and zoned monazite grains. Using principal component analysis (PCA) software, we will produce rich spectrum-based phase maps acquired with no input regarding the composition of sample—the PCA software does all the work. No matter who does the analysis, the results will be the same. Plus, because this method uses fewer counts per pixel, and thus less acquisition time, we can rapidly and successfully distinguish the phases with even low voltages.
