Abstract

This is a review of the current status of microanalysis standards at NIST -what is presently available, what will soon be available, and what might be available in the future. Many of the standards issued in the past such as Cartridge Brass (SRM 478), Fe-3%Si Alloy (SRM483), Mineral Glasses for Microanalysis (SRM 470), Fe-Cr-Ni Alloy (SRM 479a), and some of the Glasses for Microanalysis (SRMs 1871,1974, and 1875) are not presently available due to limited stock and/or popularity. If there is sufficient demand, additional samples of the last three groups in this list could be made available. SRMs that are still available for purchase are W-20%Mo Alloy (SRM 480), Au-Ag Alloys (SRM 481), Au-Cu Alloys (SRM482), Synthetic Glasses (SRM 1872 and 1873), and Thin Film for Transmission ElectronMicroscope (SRM 2063a). The K-411 glass microspheres is in the final stages of certification as NIST SRM 2066. Quantitative analysis showed that the composition of microspheres in the 2-υm to 40-υm diameter range are similar to the certified values of the bulk K-411 glass.
