Abstract  

The possibility to use proton induced X-ray fluorescence in trace analysis is investigated. Sensitivities and detection limits for elements from Z=24 are determined. The influence of a NaCl matrix on these parameters is measured and some possibilities are given to use the technique in analytical practice.

Abstract  

Using activation by 16 MeV α-particles quantitative analysis has been carried out for P and Cl in natural waters with a reproducibility of ±5%. Limits of detection of 0.1 and 0.4 ppm were obtained for the two elements, respectively. The method is applied to the determination of P and Cl in water samples taken in the environment of Amsterdam.

Abstract  

Proton induced X-ray emission (PIXE) is used in an attempt to identify glass samples with the aid to determine, trace element concentrations. The elements Na and A1 are simultaneously determined using the (p, p' γ) nuclear reaction. The preparation of very thin and homogeneous glass targets is discussed and a procedure is described to obtain an accurate equipment calinration, checked afterwards with NBS bovine liver. Results are given for 11 different glass samples.
