Rapid Mounting of Particulate Samples for Use in Scanning Electron Microscopy.
Power Technol 3(5):311-313
Particulate samples can be mounted readily for use in a scanning electron microscope by first depositing particles on doubleback adhesive tape attached to a metal slug and then coating with conductive metal. Coal dust was used to illustrate this technique. Since particles are not embedded in the tape, particle size can be measured reliably and accurate shape characterization is feasible.
