X-Ray Fluorescence Analyzers

X-Ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzers can be used determine the chemical makeup of a material by measuring the X-rays released from a sample when it is energized by a principal X-ray source.

Every element contained within a sample generates a distinct group of fluorescent X-rays, essentially "a fingerprint" of each element. By determining the strength and distinctive energy of the released X-rays, an X-ray fluorescence analyzer can offer qualitative and quantitative information on the thickness and makeup of the material being subjected to testing.

X-ray fluorescence analyzers are commonly used to test metals, glass, ceramics and building materials, as well as for research in geochemistry, forensic science, and archaeology
