A number of tests for MicrOmega have been carried out using a prototype to monitor its capability and performance. The prototype has acquired spectral images of samples at a pixel level, identifying their composition. This figure shows a view of a 5 × 5 mm sample with sulphate grains embedded in a matrix.
