Rutherford Backscattering - A Tool for Quantification of the Results of PIXE Analysis of Single Hair Strands

Li, Hong-Kou and Akselsson, Roland LU (1985) In Nuclear Instruments & Methods in Physics Research. Section B: Beam Interactions with Materials and Atoms 12(2). p.265-268
Abstract
As shown in a companion paper the geometrical diameter of a hair strand is an important parameter for quantification of its trace element content after PIXE analysis. By analysing Rutherford backscattered protons simultaneously with PIXE analysis a reliable estimate of the hair diameter can be obtained. In this work the hypothesis that there exists a linearity between the geometrical diameter and the number of backscattered protons in a certain energy interval is developed, discussed and experimentally verified.
