Abstract
An accelerator-based arrangement in which facilities using particle-induced X-rays and gamma-rays and scattered particles are included constitutes a very powerful analytical set-up especially when combined with adequate sampling techniques. In this paper, the designs of two major work environment investigations are described.

In one of the investigations (in which 3000 multielemental analyses were performed) a thorough characterization of welding aerosols from different welding operations was carried out. In the other investigation (400 analyses), special concern was devoted to metal spraying operations involving chromium and nickel exposure to workers.

To exemplify the fact that the PIXE technique is a fast,... (More)

To exemplify the fact that the PIXE technique is a fast, multielemental analytical method only requiring very small samples, some results are discussed. (Less)
