X-ray spectroscopy is a powerful tool for diagnosing the emission characteristics of X-ray sources. It may also be used in characterizing the elemental and chemical states present in compound materials, including the spatial distribution of these states – spectromicroscopy. This paper describes the appropriate spectroscopic techniques along with examples of their uses – the characterization of laser-plasma sources and the study of chemical state distributions in medium density fibreboard. The possibility of using laboratory-scale sources for spectromicroscopy, as opposed to synchrotrons, are discussed, taking into account the signal to noise ratios that are required to provide the necessary precision.
