An elemental mapping technique utilizing an omega-type energy filter and imaging plates with large pixel numbers (3760 × 3000 pixels) was developed. By adjusting the shifts of energy-filtered images on the imaging plates, it was shown that elemental mapping was carried out successfully based on the three window method. The technique was applied to the analysis of elemental distribution of fine precipitates in steel, and the complicated structure of the fine precipitates was clarified through the elemental maps. These results demonstrate that the elemental mapping technique using an omega filter and imaging plates is quite useful to analyse the elemental distribution in various advanced materials.
