How to calculate the Bremsstrahlung Background?

  1. Sep 4, 2012 #1
    Hi everybody,

    first I like to thank you for this nice forum :smile:
    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.
