What is
Tap for info.
XRF is short for X-Ray Fluorescence, which refers to the emission of 'secondary' x-ray radiation from an element which has been bombarded with 'primary' x-ray radiation, i.e. radiation from an external source. The emission of this secondary radiation is known as 'fluorescence', and its measurement provides the mechanism for XRF spectrometry.

XRF spectrometry is widely used to determine the elemental composition of materials, particularly in fields such as metallurgy, geology, environmental analysis and forensics. The advent of handheld XRF analysers has allowed scientists and industrialists to obtain fast, accurate and non-destructive readings in the field, without recourse to traditional and lengthy sampling and laboratory techniques. XRF spectrometry and associated handheld instruments have, therefore, become a powerful tool providing rapid results in the grading of metals, detection of contaminants, analysis of soil and rock samples plus many other applications.
