a The commercial multi-grid holder which can load four TEM grids. b The thick upper cover part of a which can block EDS signals to the detector. c The thick lower part of a. d The COXEM single-grid holder for STEM-in-SEM. e The thick upper cover part of d. f The thick lower part of d. g, h The EDS spectra of the Mini-SEM obtained at 15 kV from synthetic hydroxyapatite (Ca5(PO4)3OH) using the holders in a and d show high Al intensities generated from the holder. i Schematic diagram showing the source of strong Al signals and weak sample signals from the EDS analysis
