Characterization of surface oxides of a metal powder

Challenge number : 60486 Opening Date : 2019-11-06
Status : Open Closing Date : 2020-11-06

Context

We are a producer of metal powders and the method of manufacture generates a layer of oxide on the surface.
The metal powders are micrometric in size and we want to measure the% oxygen in a typical sample.
