Microanalysis and on-line computers

Kurt F. J. Heinrich

804 Blossom Dr., Rockville, MD, U.S.A.

The use of on-line computers in electron probe microanalysis permits obtaining results of complex correction calculations almost simultaneously with the measurement. Numerical operations can be used to advantage, replacing formal integration, and simplifications in the procedure which previously were unavoidable are no longer necessary.
