Objectives and topics

The workshop will cover the theory and applications of the various XRF spectrometric techniques, from the well stablished to the emerging topics.

The program will consist on several lectures, given by international and national recognized speakers and practical sessions which will include hands on activities using different x-ray fluorescence based configurations: TXRF , EDXRF and µ-EDXRF.

Attendees wil have the opportunity to bring up questions on specific topics or applications for discussion in the workshop.

Topics of discussion:

  • Sample preparation procedures for XRF analysis
  • Quantification methodology
  • State-of-the-Art of commercial and lab-made XRF instrumentation (WDXRF, EDXRF, TXRF, µ-XRF)
  • XRF spectrometry applications (Theoretical and practical sessions)
  • Organizing committee
