Featured Application Note WDXRF: Silicate Rock Analysis by the Low Dilution Fusion Method

The measurement of geochemical data from silicate rock is essential for modern petrology. WDXRF is a popular method for the determination of major elements in silicate rock, using the fusion method for sample preparation. For measurement of the trace elements the pressed powder method is often used because dilution by flux significantly reduces sensitivities. This […]
