Reid, A. P. and Potts, W. T. W. and Oates, K. and Mulvaney, R. and Wolff, E. W. (1992) Preparation of aqueous standards for low temperature X-ray microanalysis. Microscopy Research and Technique, 22 (2). pp. 207-211. ISSN 1059-910XFull text not available from this repository.
A technique, using Nuclepore polycarbonate membrane filters as a containing medium for very small volumes of ionic standard solutions, to produce homogeneous ice standards is described. The standards are suitable for use in a scanning electron microscope. The relationship between elemental X-ray counts and ionic concentration is found to be linear. The method is rapid and simple. Minimum detectable concentrations are given.
