Abstract
In this study we model the interaction of an electron beam with small (less than 0.5 microns) particles in order to understand the limitations and advantages of several analytical techniques. From this study we see that both Auger and EDS have advantages depending on particle size and desired information. In general, lower voltage is favored for small particle analysis by EDS, while high voltage gives the best small particle results with Auger.
