Siemens (now Bruker) SRS 300 X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometer

X-ray fluorescence spectrometer

This instrument is used in the major, minor, and trace element analysis of solid materials. In our case that means silicate rocks, for which this is the method of choice. The instrument can also be used to analyze liquid samples, but this is rarely done. Recording and reduction of data are handled by a dedicated computer.
