Phosphor Imaging Plate Measurement of Electron Scattering in the Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope

Published

Author(s)

Scott A. Wight, Cynthia J. Zeissler

Abstract

Phosphor Imaging Plate Technology is applied to electron beam scattering in the Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope. The plate is exposed to primary and scattered electrons which stimulate the phosphor grains to an excited state. The intensity of the grains upon reading gives a visual representation of where electrons struck the plate. This direct measurement of electron scatter is important to improving models and analytical correction procedures.
