STUDY OF THE RESPONSE OF ENERGY DISPERSIVE X-RAY SPECTROMETERS USING MONTE CARLO SIMULATIONS
ResumoEnergy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (EDXRF) is a popular nondestructivetechnique that is used for qualitative and quantitative identification of elements. Becauseof the speed of the analysis and its non-destructiveness this technique has been very oftenused for archaeological studies. In this work we used the XRF spectrometer from Amptek R , witha gold anode and a SDD detector to characterize samples of gold and we performed a quantitative analysis using the XRS-FP software. We also successfully employed the XMI-MSIMsoftware to simulate the response of the Amptek R detector.
