    Direct identification of the components of inclusions and precipitates can be performed with the aid of the electron probe micro-analyzer. Although the method is restrictive as to minimum particle size, range of detectable elements, and attainable accuracy, satisfactory characterization of the inclusions is generally possible. Special techniques applicable to inclusions and precipitates and recent applications are discussed.
