So we analyzed the elements using energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy. And in the spectrum I got were the characteristic Dysprosium emission line and the one from Sodium pretty much on the same spot. So we had to do a wavelenght-dispersive test as well and then I was able to confirm the sodium.

Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) is one of two general types of X-ray Fluorescence techniques used for elemental analysis applications.

X-ray optics can be used to enhance EDXRF instrumentation. For conventional XRF instrumentation, typical focal spot sizes at the sample surface range in diameter from several hundred micrometers. Total reflection X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (TXRF) is a trace elemental micro analysis technique based on conventional energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence.

It has become increasingly popular in the last few decades and is applied in almost every field of trace elemental analysis where low detection limits and multi element capabilities. The bromide limit of detection by this approach was 10 μg L(-1). Good agreement was obtained between the TXRF results for the total bromine and bromide determinations in soils and those obtained by other popular analytical techniques, e.g.

Dept. of Energy, ; Description Book — 1 online resource (p. An X-ray fluorescence (XRF) device using polarizing X-rays for trace element analysis of rocks, soils, sewage sludges, ashes and other related materials is described.

During a measuring time of 20 min, 40 elements (19⩽⩽92) can be determined with high precision with. X-ray Fluorescence For example, XRF is used in analysis of rocks and metals with an accuracy of ~% of the major elements. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is the phenomenon where a material is exposed to X-rays of high energy, and as the X-ray (or photon) strikes an atom (or a molecule) in the sample, energy is absorbed by the atom.

Total bromine in brines may be determined directly by x-ray fluorescence by measuring the peak-to-background intensity ratio of the bromine K-alpha radiation. The accuracy of the determination is unaffected by wide differences in the specific gravity of the brines.

Bromine concentrations of 1 to ppm may be determined in about one minute with an accuracy comparable to that of usual. Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (WDXRF) is one of two general types of X-ray Fluorescence instrumentation used for elemental analysis applications.

In WDXRF spectrometers, all of the elements in the sample are excited simultaneously. Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS, EDX, EDXS or XEDS), sometimes called energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDXA) or energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis (EDXMA), is an analytical technique used for the elemental analysis or chemical characterization of a sample.

It relies on an interaction of some source of X-ray excitation and a characterization capabilities are due in. Monitoring total bromine and bromide concentrations in soils is significant in many environmental studies. Thus fast analytical methodologies that entail simple sample preparation and low-cost analyses are desired.
