An elemental linescan is made by having the EDS measure the elemental composition of each pixel along a user defined line across the sample. Graphs of relative abundance of selected elements are shown.
This sample is a fragment of an Esquel Palasite — a stony iron meteorite. The same sample is shown on the Elemental Mapping page. This sample is mainly composed of iron (Fe), nickel (Ni) and phosphorus (P) therefore linescans are shown for these three elements.
