Abstract

Fly ash particles or other similar particles may be quantitatively analyzed with a flat-sample, matrix-correction method that has been modified to include the peak-to-background ratio for each element as a normalizing factor. The effects of the different matrix corrections on particles are discussed. Examples of analyses of standard reference material glass particles by both a standard matrix correction program (FRAME C) and a modified correction program (FRAME P) are presented as well as analyses of fly ash (SRM-1633).
