The variation in the fluorescent intensity of a given-wavelength X-radiation with its matrix has been found to be generally inverse to the variation in its mass absorption coefficient. Intensity-matrix correlations have been studied for iron, chromium, thorium, manganese, calcium, silicon, tantalum, columbium, titanium, and zirconium, and complete systems of calibration curves developed therefrom. A simple method for representing a family of curves based on the intensity of the pure material is described.
