X-Ray Fluorescence Analysis of Geological Materials Using Rousseau's Fundamental Algorithm

  • R. G. Johnson (a1)

Extract

The analysis of many types of geological samples by X- ray fluorescence (XRF) spectroscopy has become routine. For example, the analysis of major elements in silicate rocks is not a problem because of the large number of standard reference materials available, and because of the benefits of the fusion preparation. Even simple linear regression analysis provides accurate results when standards and samples are similar.
