Fundamental and practical techniques of X-ray Fluorescence analysis using the Epsilon 1, Epsilon 3X and Epsilon 3XLE bench top EDXRF spectrometer range are treated in this course. Particular emphasis is placed on the practical use of the spectrometer in conjunction with its software.
Practical aspects of parameter selection, matrix effects, sample preparation, qualitative and quantitative analysis, standardless analysis using Omnian, calibration and analysis results are addressed extensively.
The course is composed of lectures and practical sessions, covered by
exercises and tutorials on the bench top systems, within our application laboratory, in Westborough Massachusetts.
The following aspects will be covered during the course:
• Physics of X-rays
• The X-ray spectrometer
• SSD detector and its properties
• Instrumental parameters
• Matrix effects
• Sample preparation
• Set-up application including calibration
• Measurement of unknown samples
• Standardless analysis
