Overview

X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, one of the most powerful and flexible techniques available for the analysis and characterization of materials today, has gone through major changes during the past decade. Fully revised and expanded by 30%, X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry, Second Edition incorporates the latest industrial and scientific trends in all areas. It updates all previous material and adds new chapters on such topics as the history of X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, the design of X-ray spectrometers, state-of-the-art applications, and X-ray spectra. Ron Jenkins draws on his extensive experience in training and consulting industry professionals for this clear and concise treatment, covering first the basic aspects of X rays, then the methodology of Z-ray fluorescence spectroscopy and available instrumentation. He offers a comparison between wavelength and energy dispersive spectrometers as well as step-by-step guidelines to X-ray spectrometric techniques for qualitative and quantitative analysis-from specimen preparation to real-world industrial application. Favored by the American Chemical Society and the International Centre for Diffraction Date, X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry, Second Edition is an ideal introduction for newcomers to the field and an invaluable reference for experienced spectroscopists-in chemical analysis, geology, metallurgy, and materials science.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...much new material.... For those wishing to get to grips with X-ray techniques for the first time there is no better introduction." (Talanta, Vol 52, 2000)

"I have no doubt that this text would prove useful to its target readership" (Contemporary Physics, Vol.42, No.4, 2001)

Booknews
Without noting a date of original publication, Jenkins updates the textbook that has been used for courses by the American Chemical Society and the International Centre for Diffraction Data, where he teaches. He begins by describing the production and properties of x- rays and their industrial applications. Then he considers such topics as spectra, the history and development of x-ray fluorescence spectrometry itself, instrumentation, a comparison of wavelength and energy-dispersive spectrometers, preparing and presenting specimens, applications in qualitative analysis, and quantitative procedures in analysis.
