DEFINITION: The analysis of the spectrum of fluorescent X-RAYS, i.e. X-rays emitted after bombarding matter with high energy particles such as PROTONS; ELECTRONS; or higher energy X-rays. The identification and quantitation of ELEMENTS by this technique is based on the fact that the wavelength and intensity of the fluorescent X-rays are characteristic of specific elements and the concentration of the elements in the matter being analyzed.
