Proton-Induced X-ray Emission Spectroscopy in Elemental Trace Analysis

Johansson, Thomas B LU ; Akselsson, Roland LU and Johansson, Sven A E (1972) In Advances in X-Ray Analysis 15. p.373-387
Abstract
Using protons in the MeV range as excitation source and a high resolution Si(Li) detector,X-ray emission spectroscopy is shown to be capable of analyzing many elements with Z > 15 simultaneously at the 10-12 g level. This work discusses a theoretical lower limit of detection at moderate proton energies and gives examples of possible applications: analysis of the elemental composition of air-borne particles as a function of particle size, oil slick identification, and analysis of water and blood serum.
