Dear Warren and others,Our microprobe runs under Windows. Can anybody tell me how to edit the standard data, so that I can reprocess the measurements?Thanks in advance,
Fernando

Are there no other elements present? What does EDS or a wavescan show? If they show nothing, and if there are no invisible elements (e.g., H), then I suppose you could declare it was really 100% pure.    The fact that your standard measures again at 96% shows the repeatability of your process. It looks like you are being consistent.    Under the Solaris version of the JEOL software, there is a way to go in and edit the standard data. If you were to set the standard intensity to 96.1% of what it is currently, you should be able to reanalyze (or reprocess) the current data so that the standard comes up as 100% ThO2. (There may also be a way to change the composition of the standard back to 100%, but I have never tried to do that.)    However, I would be very careful to make sure that the action is justified. It would be erroneous to define your standard as pure if it really is not.    Warren Straszheim JXA-8200 Ames Lab Ames, IA    From: JEOL-Focused Probe Users List [mailto:[log in to unmask]]On Behalf Of Fernando Colombo

Subject: [PROBEUSERS] problem with Th standard    Hi,    Some time ago I analyzed monazite. Later, when checking the .cor file, I found in the "Standard data" section that the ThO2 concentration was listed as 96.1180 (mass %). Since I am using a pure ThO2 standard, first I thought that I had entered the wrong numbers in the Standard Manager screen. However, after checking it, it was correct (100.00 % ThO2). When I analize the Th standard as an unknown, I do get about 96% ThO2.  Any suggestion on how to correct this (other than multiplying the ThO2 result by 100/96.118) will be most appreciated.    Fernando Colombo LAMARX - Universidad Nacional de Córdoba Argentina **** JEOL Probe Users Listserver  Moderator: Anette von der Handt, [log in to unmask], Electron Microprobe Lab, University of Minnesota Post a message: send your message to [log in to unmask]  Unsubscribe: send "SIGNOFF PROBEUSERS" to [log in to unmask]  On-line help and FAQ: http://probelab.geo.umn.edu/jeoluserlist.html  * ****JEOL Probe Users ListserverModerator: Anette von der Handt, [log in to unmask],Electron Microprobe Lab, University of MinnesotaPost a message: send your message to [log in to unmask]: send "SIGNOFF PROBEUSERS" to [log in to unmask] help and FAQ: http://probelab.geo.umn.edu/jeoluserlist.html*
