Abstract
When a focused electron beam impinges on a cathodoluminescent (CL) material in a scanning electron microscope (SEM), secondary electrons, characteristic x rays and visible photons are emitted. These signals can be used to construct a two-dimensional topographical, chemical and luminescence map, respectively [1]. Although the combination of CL (both monochromatic and panchromatic) and EDX (energy-dispersive x-ray analysis) has already been applied by several research groups, we developed software to simultaneously collect, analyse and correlate the chemical composition and the spectrally resolved CL emission in each image point. This method was applied to several types of samples, showing the versatility of this integrated research approach and its application to luminescence research.
