XRF in Archaeology

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) spectrometry is a prevalent means of non-destructive elemental analysis in archaeology, the earth and environmental sciences, cultural heritage and museum studies, and other fields. A few universities have specialized “archaeological XRF laboratories” outfitted with a benchtop XRF spectrometer, vacuum pump or gas tanks, desktop computers, and support equipment in a dedicated space. We are fundamentally different.
