X-ray Fluorescence (XRF)


XRF is a robust technique, combining high precision and accuracy with straightforward, fast sample preparation. It can be readily automated for use in high-throughput industrial environments, plus XRF provides both qualitative and quantitative types of information on a sample. Easy combination of this ‘what?’ and ‘how much?’ information also makes rapid screening (semi-quantitative) analysis possible.

The technology used for the separation (dispersion), identification and intensity measurement of a sample’s X-ray fluorescence spectrum gives rise to two main types of spectrometer: wavelength dispersive (WDXRF) and energy dispersive (EDXRF) systems.
