Fused Bead Analysis of Various Oxide Materials Using OXIDE-FB-PAK

This application note introduces OXIDE-FB-PAK and demonstrates analysis results using this analysis package.


The fusion method in X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis is an effective sample preparation technique for getting accurate analysis results of powder samples, since the technique eliminates heterogeneity due to grain size and mineralogical difference. In addition, the homogenization of material property by vitrification makes it possible to expand the calibration range by the use of synthetic standards of fused beads with reagents or by using diverse reference materials. Rigaku provides an analysis package for various oxide materials by the fusion method, named "OXIDE-FB-PAK".
