XRF Spectrometers

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry is common chemical evaluation method based on the idea that atoms excited by an energy source give off X-ray photons of a specific energy or wavelength. By tracking the amount and particular energy of photons released from a sample, the elements in the sample may be determined and quantified. Most XRF instruments belong to one of two categories: energy-dispersive (ED) and wavelength-dispersive (WD) spectrometers. Modern XRF instruments can analyze solid, liquid, and thin-film samples for both substantial and trace amounts of components. The typical evaluation is quick and sample preparation is usually minimal or not necessary.
