Handheld/Mobile/Portable XRF Spectrometers

Handheld / portable X-ray fluorescent (XRF) analyzers have the capability to non-destructively quantify or qualify nearly any element from Magnesium to Uranium, depending on the instrument configuration.

How Handheld XRF Works: A Step-by-Step Guide

XRF is an acronym for x-ray fluorescence, a process whereby electrons are displaced from their atomic orbital positions, releasing a burst of energy that is characteristic of a specific element. This release of energy is then registered by the detector in the XRF instrument, which in turn categorizes the energies by element.
