It has become increasingly apparent that one of the most important devices for instrumental chemical analysis is the X-ray emission spectrometer. It should now be considered as sharing in importance in the teaching laboratory with infrared and ultraviolet spectrophotometers, the optical emission spectrograph, the polarograph, the chromatograph, and nuclear paramagnetic resonance instrumentation. Indeed, present commercial usage (over and above research and university laboratories) of the X-ray emission spectrometer has grown to the point that the shortage of scientists and technicians previously trained and currently being trained in this specialty presents a serious problem to industry.
