Detection of minor peaks of iron-based samples using the D/teX Ultra high-speed 1D X-ray detector

AppNote B-XRD1012: detection of minor peaks in iron-based samples with D/teX Ultra detector


If a high-speed 1-dimensional detector is used, and comparison is done under measurement conditions with the same resolution, it is possible to obtain an intensity approximately 100 times that of a scintillation counter (SC). However, if the sample contains elements with a high mass-absorption coefficient for the X-ray wavelength used, then there will be a major increase in the background due to fluorescent X-rays. The D/teX Ultra high-speed 1D X-ray detector has high energy resolution, and can greatly reduce the rise in background due to fluorescent X-rays from the sample by narrowing the detected energy range.
