Analysis Requirements:
The powder samples should be dried and moisture/oil free and the minimum amount should be 5mg. In case of solid materials (ceramics/geological materials) the samples should be prepared by the users (cutting/polishing/etching etc.). The maximum sample size, in case of bulk materials, should not exceed 1 cm2 and 0.5 cm in thickness.
