## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everybody,

first I like to thank you for this nice forum

I tried the search function and found no answer to my question, so here it is:

How can I calculate the Bremsstrahlungs background for TEM EDX spectras (Intensity vs. Energy)?

I found several formulas, for example the oldest Kramers/Small, but they all have

a 1/E dependecy, wich of course go to ∞ approaching 0. But since I am interested in

the Oxygen peak, that doesn´t help much...

If anyone have an idea or can give me some directions (link to a paper maybe?)

I would realy appreciate.

Thanks
