Analysis of high-temperature superconducting films by X-ray fluorescence analysis

  • 35 Accesses

  • 5 Citations


Radionuclide X-ray fluorescence analysis was used for the determination of Cu, Y and Ba in very thin high-temperature superconducting films. The precision of the method is better than 3% for about 1 μm thick films. The atomic emission ICP spectrometry was used to testify results of XRF analysis. An acceptable agreement of both methods was obtained.
