Abstract
A method has been developed to characterize large populations of individual respirable particles. With the use of custom data collection and data correlation computer software, the same set of particles can be analyzed in multiple instruments. The method is demonstrated by the analysis of a sample of hard-metal particles. A series of particles are analyzed by Auger electron spectroscopy, and then the same particles are analyzed by scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive spectroscopy.
