To widen the usual capabilities of X-ray fluorescence analysis, the ARL PERFORM’X spectrometer now offers the ability for small spot analysis. These analyses can be either qualified or quantified by simply measuring a chosen spot on the sample surface.

The small spot analysis size allows determination of embedded particles or inhomogeneous specimens and product failure investigations. With a choice of 1.5 mm or 0.5 mm, the ARL PERFORM’X spectrometer offers a perfect complement to bridge the gap between traditional bulk analysis and standard micro-analysis using microscopic techniques such as SEM. A camera is included for selecting the spots of interest.
