Scanning Electron Microscopy with Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy  (SEM-EDX) is a technique for analyzing the elements present near the surface of a selected microscopic region of a sample.  Using the SEM image to select the area of interest, an energy dispersive detector is used to measure the energies of backscattered x-rays which are characteristic of the elements present.
