Abstract

A new in-vacuum micro-PIXE experimental set-up has been realised at an Oxford-type scanning nuclear microprobe facility. It is based on the simultaneous use of an ultra thin windowed detector and a conventional Be-windowed one for the measurement of the characteristic X-rays of light and heavier elements in the E≈ 0.2-6 keV and E > 4 keV energy ranges, respectively. Complete analytical characterisation of samples from carbon to uranium is possible in a single irradiation process. Performance and technical developments are described in detail.
