Screening Analysis of Soil, Water and Waste with X-Ray Fluorescence Using Matrix Independent Calibration Techniques
The need of screening tools for on site field analysis leads to an increasing interest for the use of x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis. Different studies performed in 2000 show a systematic comparison between the different instrument techniques available in the market. Beside the design of the instruments concerning excitation source, sample presentation and detection system also the use of the calibration strategy is important.
