X-ray fluorescence spectrometry can provide an accurate and precise determination of metallic and many non-metallic elements. This guide covers the information that should be included in an X-ray spectrometric analytical method and provides direction to the analyst for determining the optimum conditions needed to achieve acceptable accuracy.
The accuracy of an analysis is a function of the calibration scheme, the sample preparation, and the sample homogeneity. Close attention to all aspects of these areas is necessary to achieve the best results.View Less
