Special Xrf Configurations and Related Techniques

7.1 INTRODUCTION

In addition to the more commonly used X-ray tubes and to a lesser extent the radioisotopes, discussed in detail in Section 2.2 in Chapter 2, there are other sources used in X-ray analysis based on the use of accelerated particles. Of these the most important ones are those that use synchrotron radiation, particle-induced X-ray emission, and electron-induced X-ray emission. Except for the latter case, these techniques are rarely available to the general user community, as large electron or other charged particle beams source facilities are needed—although, they cover interesting, important applications in many fields. In addition, considerable advances and improvements ...
