Get this from a library. Combined X-ray wavelength and energy-dispersive analysis to increase microprobe efficiency. [L B Wiggins; J S Huebner; Geological Survey (U.S.)]. Wavelength-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (WDXS or WDS) is a method used to count the number of X-rays of a specific wavelength diffracted by a crystal.

The wavelength of the impinging X-ray and the crystal's lattice spacings are related by Bragg's law and produce constructive interference if they fit the criteria of Bragg's law.

Unlike the related technique of energy-dispersive X-ray. Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS, EDX, EDXS or XEDS), sometimes called energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDXA) or energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis (EDXMA), is an analytical technique used for the elemental analysis or chemical characterization of a sample.

It relies on an interaction of some source of X-ray excitation and a sample. amplifier and finally passed to a computer x-ray analyzer (CXA), where the data is displayed as a histogram of intensity by voltage (energy). • The key to understanding how an energy-dispersive X-ray spectrometer (EDS) works is to recognize that each voltage pulse is proportional to the energy of the incoming x-ray photon.

In setting up the conditions for quantitative wavelength-dispersive electron microprobe analysis a number of parameters have to be defined for each element, namely accelerating voltage, beam current, and (for each element) x-ray line, spectrometer crystal, pulse-height analyser settings, background offsets, and counting times for peak and background.

The x-ray detector design is influenced by limited access to the sample due to the proximity of the objective lens pole-pieces, aperture rod, anti-contamination devices, and the sample holder.

Hence, the solid-state energy-dispersive (semiconductor) detector is preferred to crystal spectrometers and propertional counters. Trace level water analysis by energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence.
