Paper Abstract

Using a genetic algorithm, we give here an account of the procedure to obtain the best vales for the parameters necessary to fit the efficiency for a X-ray detector. The values for some variables involved in quantitative PIXE analysis, were manipulated in a similar way as the genetic information is treated in a biological process. We carried out the algorithm until we reproduce, within the confidence interval, the elemental concentrations corresponding to a reference material.
