This book provides a very basic introduction to electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS). It has the largest compiled collection of EDS spectra ever published and covers most common rock forming minerals. In addition, it provides a key to help the novice wade through the large number of spectra.

From the reviews:
"Everyone using scanning electron microscopy with EDX and anyone who is not the expert will thoroughly appreciate this novel book with flashcard-like spectra for 182 minerals. ... this useful work is a true hands-on practical guide particularly to anyone (student or professional) working occasionally or with limited experience with SEM-EDX. For those it will quickly become an almost indispensable reference ... . It is ... as such, most welcome and will certainly find many friends." (Environmental Geology, Vol. 49 (6), 2006)
"This book is a useful addition to reference works kept in geological SEM and EPMA labs that routinely use EDS detectors for phase identification. It provides a welcome update to the SEM Petrology Atlas ... . The book provides a branching `key' to identifying an unknown spectrum. ... There is also a searchable index by mineral type and by name. ... This is an excellent and useful book for its intended audience. ... I highly recommend this book." (John Fournelle, American Mineralogist, Vol. 92, 2007)
