X-ray Fluorescence Overview by Eastern Applied Research

  1. 1. X-Ray Fluorescence Technology: XRF Sales – Service – Support
  2. 2. What is XRF? Energy Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (ED-XRF) Generation of X-rays A source X-ray strikes an inner shell electron. If the x-ray is at high enough energy (above absorption edge of element), the inner shell electron is ejected from the atom. Higher energy electrons cascade to fill vacancy, giving off characteristic fluorescent X-rays. A detection system collects the fluoresced x-rays and the analyzers software determines content. For elemental analysis of F (9) to Fm (100)
  3. 3. Benefits of XRF Some Reasons that ED-XRF Is So Popular:  Relatively Low Cost of Acquisition  Non-Destructive or Minimal Sample Preparation  Speed of Measurement; from 10 to 300 seconds  Operation is Simple to Learn  Versatile Testing Equipment
  4. 4. Applications Popular Application Fields Solved by XRF:  Elemental Material Analysis  Laboratory Use: Industrial and Academic  Coating Thickness Measurements  Petrochemical Analysis (Sulfur ID)  Hazardous Substance Detection (RoHS,CPSIA)  Gold and Precious Metal Identification  Environmental Analysis and Mining Applications The staff of Eastern Applied Research has a strong working knowledge of a variety of XRF applications and has the ability to adapt that knowledge for new applications that users of XRF Technology may be looking to solve.
