Abstract

Current methods of composition measurement lack the ability to produce consistent results from laboratory to laboratory and across companies. NIST has developed AlGaAs SRMs to make standardization possible, but the standards need to be used. This opinion piece outlines some of the history of composition measurements and suggestions to move forward.
