Microbeam analysis -- Instrumental specification for energy dispersive X-ray spectrometers with semiconductor detectors
This standard has been revised by ISO 15632:2012
ISO 15632 defines the most important quantities that characterize an energy dispersive X-ray spectrometer (EDS) consisting of a semiconductor detector, a pre-amplifier and a signal processing unit as the essential parts. This International Standard is only applicable to spectrometers with semiconductor detectors operating on the principle of solid state ionization. It specifies minimum requirements for such spectrometers attached to an electron probe microanalyser (EPMA) or a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Realization of the analysis is outside the scope of this International Standard.
A standard is reviewed every 5 years
