Abstract

A description is given of a new particle-analysis procedure capable of background subtraction over the entire spectrum and of fitting the x-ray peaks for a 15-element sample in under 2 min. It consists of TWIST, a relatively simple, fast, and yet accurate routine for background subraction, and QKFIT, a linear least-squares fitting routine that uses simplifications designed to increase the speed of analysis. All data were collected on a JEOL JSM-35 scanning electron microscope with a PGT-1000 detector, analyzer, and 32K computer with four floppy-disk drives.
