Title: Uncertainties in Electron Probe Microanalysis
Published: March 12, 2010
Abstract: This tutorial discusses the importance of citing valid uncertainties when reporting analytical results and the need for a universally accepted approach for evaluating uncertainties. Today, the CIPM procedure has been accepted by numerous international organizations, as well as accepted and used by NIST. The basics of the CIPM approach are described and it is applied to the equations used in wavelength dispersive electron probe microanalysis quantification with an experimental example.
