We have published in collaboration with Francesca Picolli from the group Metamorphic Geochemistry a paper in IOP Conf. Series: Materials Science and Engineering outlines some important aspects of analytical procedure for quantitative compositional mapping by electron probe micro-analysis (EPMA) and laser ablation inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) along with recommended instrument operating conditions. Several artefacts affecting the maps are also discussed.
