19 November 1998 X-ray fluorescence analysis based on Kumakhov optics
Author Affiliations +
The use of Kumakhov optics in x-ray fluorescence analysis is considered. Thanks to high efficiency of a polycapillary lens the concentration of x-ray detector in a close proximity to the sample decreases sufficiently the time of exposure. It is shown experimentally that in the case of use of a small x-ray source with power of 2W the minimal detection limit may be of the order of 0.1 pg. A new portable x-ray fluorescence analyzer based on Kumakhov optics is described. Minimal detection limit may achieve 10-16 g if 100 W microfocus source and the lens with approximately 10 micrometers focal spot are used.
