Paper Abstract

Dedicated X-ray tubes and thermoelectrically cooled detectors have revolutionized in the last years the field of energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) analysis. The small size of both X-ray tubes and detectors allowed the construction of portable systems, with characteristics similar to those of laboratory systems. The portability of the new EDXRF systems opened also all the new analytical fields where the 'sample' cannot be transported to the Laboratory (analysis of works of art in museum, analysis of minerals, of soil, and etc.).
