Micro-Auto-Radiography (MAR) is a method used in biological research for the microlocalization of elements in a tissue section. The spatial resolution is often of the order of 0.5 μm and the sensitivity may be extremely high. In this paper we shall compare the sensitivity of this method with Ion Microscopy (I.M), an other method of microlocalization with a similar spatial resolution.
