    Computer controlled SEMlEDXS enables the measurement of both the geometrical parameters and the chemical composition of thousands of individual particles. Thus it is an ideal tool to study the process of aerosol fonnation, e.g. in biomass combustion units, and how it can be influenced by the process parameters. The accuracy of both the measured geometrical parameters and the quantitative results of the x-ray analysis decreases with decreasing particle size. Nevertheless, an automated analysis of particles down to a size of 50 - 100 nm is possible.
