  Information - GMPV15 Combined analysis of micro- nano-structures and chemistry of geomaterials: advanced imaging and microanalysis

Event Information
The objective of this session is to present state of the art micro- and nanoanalytical techniques for the investigation of geomaterials down to an atomic level. Presently, we use advanced analytical techniques such as 3D analysis (Focused Ion Beam (FIB)/SEM), 3D elemental maps, 3D EBSD, 3D microstructure, TEM/FIB, FEG electron microprobe analysis, Micro-spectroscopy (IR, Raman), synchrotron XRF and NanoSIMS. Only the combination of the different techniques will improve our knowledge on geomaterials and geological processes.
