Benchtop XRF Course

Fundamental and practical techniques of X-ray fluorescence analysis using the Epsilon 1, Epsilon 3X, and Epsilon 3XLE EDXRF spectrometers are treated in this course.

Course details

Particular emphasis is placed on the practical use of the spectrometer in conjunction with its software. Practical aspects of parameter selection, spectrum deconvolution, matrix effects, sample preparation, qualitative and quantitative analysis, standardless analysis using Omnian, calibration and analysis results are dealt with extensively. The course is composed of lectures and practical sessions, with exercises on equipment currently available in our application laboratory.

The following aspects will be covered during the course:
• Physics of X-rays
• The X-ray spectrometer
• SSD detector and its properties
• Instrumental parameters
• Spectrum deconvolution
