ASSESSING THE ENVIRONMENT WITH X-RAY FLUORESCENCE
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2011

In this paper we will introduce the general benefits of X-Ray Fluorescence spectrometry (XRF) for assessing the condition of the outer environment, especially where ambient aerosol particles are causing environmental disturbances. Examples from recent environmental studies are presented, and energy dispersive XRF is concluded to be a powerful, nondestructive yet easily applicable tool to supply detailed elemental information of particles collected in different applications. The further development and future potential of the method for detailed analysis of aerosol particles are discussed.
