ICDD Clinic on X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry The International Centre for
Diffraction Data is sponsoring two clinics on X-ray Fluorescence
Spectrometry. Deadline for registration is March 26, 1999. We urge you to
register online at: www.icdd.com/products/clinics/xrf.htm or contact Jeanne
Ginsburg at ginsburg at icdd.com for more information.

Session I - Fundamentals of X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry - April 19- 23,
1999 Covering basics of X-ray spectra, instrumentation design, methods of
qualitative and quantitative analysis, specimen preparation and applications
for both wavelength and energy dispersive spectrometry.

Course Outline:
Excitation and properties of X-rays
X-ray fluorescence spectrometry
Instrumentation and methods
Detection and intensity measurement
Pulse height selection and analysis
Energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry
