X-Ray spectrometer is based on the method of the Energy- Dispersive-X-Ray-Fluorescence analysis (ED-XRF). The atoms in the sample material, which could be any solid, powder or liquid, are excited by X-Rays emitted from an X-Ray tube or radioisotope. All elements specific X-Ray fluorescence signals which are emitted by the atoms after the photoelectric ionization. The signals are measured simultaneously in a fixed mounted semi-conductor detector or sealed gas-proportional counter.
