Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy

The energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer irradiates the sample with X-rays and measures the energy (wavelength) and intensity of the generated fluorescent X-rays to determine the type and content of the elements comprising the sample. As X-ray fluorescence spectrometry permits the non-destructive elemental analysis of solid, powder, and liquid samples as well as rapid, non-destructive testing for harmful elements in printed circuit boards and other electronic devices. It it is widely used by electronics and automobile manufacturers around the world for receiving and shipping inspections and other quality control in compliance with the RoHS/ELV Directive.
