SEM-EDS (Scanning Electron Microscope & Energy-Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy) combines the scanning electron microscope with a micro probe.

At KFL the SEM-EDS analyses are used to e.g. confirm the presence of bone-temper, which may often leave only cavities in the ware. Furthermore it is used for identifying metal and slag inclusions in technical ceramics and occasionally to identify single mineral grains of special importance to the sourcing of the ceramic raw materials. Thin-sections without cover glass are well suited for SEM-EDS analyses.
