A Computer Controlled X-ray Spectrograph
One of the more recent developments in X-ray fluorescence spectrography is the use of a general-purpose digital computer to automatically operate the spectrometer and process the data for elemental analysis. This paper describes the various operating parameters controlled by the computer including such options as count-limit and repetition-limit and also the general mode of operation.
