We start with a XRF course on Monday October 18.
The user meeting is Wednesday-Thursday-Friday 24-26 November. 


XRF instrument for analysis has now existed for more than half a century, but technology is still developing. With XRF you can now measure most of the elements. Those in most cases that are not measured are the lighter elements such as boron, oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, etc. As all the techniques even XRF has many disadvantages – when you know those your results can be improved! 



The scope of the user meeting is the exchange of knowledge, experience and practical tips between all users of different techniques using elemental X-ray fluorescence. Here, users gather to exchange experience and follow developments. Lectures (mainly in English) are mixed with discussions. 

At the meeting we will include sample preparation (milling, grinding, briquette and glass bead), measurement of fluids, development and maintenance of instruments. We will in detail discuss the performance of energy and wavelength dispersive XRF and compare handheld instruments and lab instruments. We exchange experiences with each other. 

Target audience

The target audience is those working in a laboratory with energy, wavelength dispersive or XRF or Handheld XRF. The goal is to exchange experience with other users. The content is governed by the participants and all requests for items to discuss are welcome. 


XRF Course

The XRF course is held in collaboration between Trollboken AB and Kemistutbildarna AB and is led by Bertil Magnusson.


We wish all very very welcome
