Sample details

It's very important that we know which elements you're looking to investigate, in order to provide the best possible analysis and advice on experimental set-up. Please provide details of all samples in the following format: Sample 1 (SAMPLE NAME) - (List of elements) - Approximate stoichiometry (Any format e.g. CH3NH3PbI3, 5 wt.% Cu on MgO, 100 ppm iron in polyurethane) Groups of sample with the same elements of interest may be listed together e.g. Sample 1 (ABCD#001) - 5% Ag/Al2O3 Sample 2 (ABCD#002) - 10% Ag/Al2O3 (Ag, Al, O, C) If sample name indicated stoichiometry then name along is sufficient, e.g. Sample 1 (1% Pt/SiO2) Sample 2 (2% Pt/SiO2) Sample 3 (5% Pt/SiO2) (Pt, Si, O, C)
