electron energy loss spectroscopy

[i′lek‚trän ′en·ər·jē ‚lȯs spek′träs·kə·pē]
(spectroscopy)
A technique for studying atoms, molecules, or solids in which a substance is bombarded with monochromatic electrons, and the energies of scattered electrons are measured to determine the distribution of energy loss. Abbreviated EELS.

The electron energy loss spectroscopy and high-resolution images were obtained using a JEOL ARM (200F) microscope at the Research Center of Advanced Materials (RCAM) of Chihuahua-Mexico, operating at 200 kV, equipped with a Cs corrector (CEOS GmbH) and a FEG-STEM/TEM unit.
Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy. Spectra used to perform EELS microanalysis were acquired in image mode (convergence and collection angle of 0.1 and 20 mrad, resp.) and the obtained information was relative to the zone defined by the superposition of the circular spectrometer aperture (2 mm of diameter) and the image.
The amorphous materials covering the nanotube surface of SWNTs were confirmed to be preimiarly nitrogen-containing polymer functionalities by corresponding electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) characterization before and after ex situ thermal defunctionalization of the sample of the same TEM specimen.
