Direct observation of the major components of mouse bones and related compounds by electron Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy

Vos, Maarten; Tokesi, K; Benkö, Ilona

Description

We present measurements, using electron Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy (eRBS), aiming to estimate the concentration of the various elements in mouse bone. We first successfully determined the composition of calcium carbonate, followed by an analysis of the more complicated case of hydroxyapatite. Finally we studied bone powder itself and established in this way that eRBS presents an interesting new flavor of microanalysis.
