.... An example is shown in the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) image of Fig. 5 ( Ref 13 ), which is reportedly from a high-purity aluminum-copper precipitation-hardening alloy with a coarse grain structure. In this example (with the coarse grain size), ductility is limited, and the local yield strength...

One limitation is that depending on the XRF detector, lighter elements such as lithium and beryllium cannot be detected, and for some detectors, the limit of detection extends to aluminum and silicon or elements with a higher atomic number. Prior to data collection...
