Abstract : Analytical electron microscopy offers two main techniques of interest to materials science : electron energy-loss spectroscopy EELS and energy-dispersive x-ray analysis EDX. The scientist is confronted with the choice of one of the two for the problem under consideration, although it is possible to employ both simultaneously. It is therefore important to know what to expect from each of the two techniques to assess which one is more likely to yield the desired information. Here both are compared to provide help in making that decision. The various aspects are illustrated with recent applications of both techniques in the research on interfaces in ceramics. Emphasis is put on the analysis of additional information contained in EELS, because this contributes to the understanding of bonding and chemistry inside the specimen.
