Application Note: Detailed EBSD study of a bivalve shell
26 August 2019

In this application note, Oxford Instruments NanoAnalysis demonstrates how the Symmetry® detector, utilizing custom-developed CMOS technology, is designed to combine sensitivity and speed, making it an ideal detector for analyzing challenging, beam-sensitive, and fine-grained structures such as aragonite nacre. Here, Oxford Instruments NanoAnalysis shows results from routine analyses of calcite-aragonite interfaces in the shell of the mollusk Mytilus edulis (the common mussel).
