Electron Spectroscope Analysis of the Atomic Content of Samples of Occupational Health Interest.
NIOSH 1975 Jan:35 pages
Induced electron emission spectroscopy is applied for the examination of 25 samples including dried lung tissue from miners, coal dusts, minerals containing silicon dioxide (7631869), a cement powder, and porous filters used to trap dust particles. Elemental identification and estimated weight percentages are determined for the samples. No experimentally significant differences are observed between different types of silica containing minerals. Specific problems concerned with induced electron emission spectroscopy are discussed with an outline of applications to work of potential interest to health and environmental studies and comments on instrumental improvements.
