Abstract

The techniques of electron microbeam probe surface analysis are reviewed with particular emphasis on the special problems encountered with ceramics and minerals. Some limitations are discussed and methods of overcoming these proposed. The unique applicability of this technique to the detailed investigation of grain boundary phenomena is emphasized. Preliminary data on the interaction between molten metals and refractories are presented.
