Abstract

A new approach for elemental analysis, which is based on the measurement of the hard x ray emitted from a laser-produced plasma is reported here. Since the K-shell emission is characteristic of the element in a sample, Cu, Zn, Fe, Co, and Ni were readily confirmed to be present in brass and kovar alloys by measuring the x-ray emission spectrum over an energy range from 2 to 30 keV.
