Empirical Approaches for the Treatment of Interelement Effects

  • K. F. J. Heinrich (a1)


Empirical algorithms for the treatment of interelement effects in x-ray fluorescence spectrometry are reviewed. It is recommended that the effects of tertiary x-ray emission be treated separately from those of x-ray absorption, and that standard reference materials of composition close to that of the specimen be used.
