ISO 19749 First edition 2021-07
Nanotechnologies - Measurements of particle size and shape distributions by scanning electron microscopy
Scope/Abstract
This document specifies methods of determining nanoparticle and shape distributions by acquiring and evaluating scanning electron microscope images and by obtaining and reporting accurate results.

NOTE 1 This document applies to particles with a lower limit that depends on the required uncertainty and on the suitable performance of the SEM, which is to be proven first -according to the requirements described in this document.

NOTE 2 This document applies also to SEM-based and shape measurements of larger than nanoscale particles.
