A method to obtain high resolution and at the same time maintain high detection efficiency using absorbers in front of a Si(Li) detector is described. The method is analysed and its potentials are demonstrated by using it to resolve the Lα2 and Lα1 lines of Au and to measure the Ls and Lt lines of Pt excited by charged particle impact. The possible use of the method in other cases is discussed.
