Experience with a Computer-Coupled X-Ray Spectrometer
There are many ways of utilizing a small computer coupled to an x-ray spectrometer. A number of different applications are presented. These include storage of equations and constants for describing analytical systems where interelement effects are present. Two examples are discussed, one of which is analyzed by both theoretical and empirical approaches. In addition, use of mathematical functions to eliminate line interferences and the need for pulse-height selection is discussed.
