Today a microprobe can be used to analyze light elements down to boron with dispersive monochromators. In most cases the microprobe is provided with a lead stearate multilayer analyzer for the elements between fluorine and boron. As the 2d spacing of the stearate analyzer is about 100 Å and is shorter than the wavelength of beryllium K-radiation (113 Å), the beryllium cannot be detected.
