Proton Scattering for Analysis of Atmospheric Particulate Matter

Akselsson, Roland LU ; Nelson, J William and Winchester, John W (1975) In Bulletin of the American Physical Society Ser II 20.
Abstract
Proton scattering has been applied to the problem of elemental quantitative analysis of air particulate matter. Elements up through chlorine may be resolved using 16 MeV protons incident upon targets up to about 1 mg/cm2 in thickness. Using the FSU Super FM Tandem Accelerator and a large area solid state proton detector, an analysis can be performed in several minutes. Combination of this technique with proton induced X-ray emission analysis provides a means of quantitative analysis for all elements. These accelerator based methods are being applied to studies of the composition of air particulate matter in diverse locations such as St. Louis, Mo.; Los Angeles, Ca.; several cities in Florida; and Bermuda.
