16 SIMS of Biomer® with only BBBC. (a) The positive ion SIMS spectrum contains peaks characteristic of PTMG (m/z = 55), MDI (m/z = 106 and 132), and BBBC (m/z = 177). (b) The negative ion SIMS spectrum for lot BSP shows only a few low m/z fragments. Reprinted with permission from Ref. . ” When electron beams hit the sample surface, the sample emits X-rays and three kinds of electrons: primary backscattered electrons, secondary electrons, and Auger electrons. In SEM, only primary backscattered electrons and secondary electrons are collected and are used to generate images of the sample.
